Arena Stage Will Present a New Musical Featuring Maurice Hines and The Manzari Brothers in 2013-14 Season
While Arena Stage will not make an official announcement for its 2013-14 season just yet, a recent newsletter teases that the season will include a new musical collaboration from Maurice Hines and the Manzari Brothers.
Hines, along with John and Leo Manzari, last appeared at Arena Stage in 2010's SOPHISTICATED LADIES. John, who was 17, and Leo, who was just 15, were discovered at a master class held by Hines in D.C. in October 2009. The teens, who attend The Field School in Northwest D.C., became instant favorites in the production, regularly receiving standing ovations in the middle of the second act for a segment that they share with Hines. "They are everything that I have waited for all my life to find," stated Hines in 2010.
The remaining events in Arena's 2012-13 season are as follows:
