The Tap Dance Kid.

La Cage... also has tapping.

I was in a production of Pippin that was heavy tap for the Leading Player.

In A Chorus Line, there's also the tap combination in which Paul falls.

dancinfan, what a great and extensive list. I would categorize Hot Feet more as a show with tap in it, rather than a tap show.


Sophisticated Ladies and Black & Blue also have a lot of tap.

Thanks a bunch guys!


I actually think the show we're doing next year is "Crazy For You".. since it sounds like something we'd do.

Does anyone know anything about it? Are there good featured guy parts in it?

Crazy for You- It's got your basic song and dance lead couple, then the villian (Lank) which is a good acting role but no singing and just chorus dancing, a dance-producer modeled off Ziegfeld called Bella Zangler, who has a song or two and quite a few lines, and then some great ensemble parts.

It was basically a Gershwin revue turned into a badly plotted show in the 1990s- as a result, the music is brilliant, dancing is brilliant, and the plot and book sucks.
Cosette: Roses are red. Marius: Violets are blue. Eponine: You're so in love! Marius: And so not with you.

A Chorus Line, but only during "I Can Do That"

That isn't really a tap dance song. In the stage production Mike doesn't actually tap dance or do a tap dancing routine.
