    TAP OR DIE

    Directed by Jackie Paré 2014 62 min
    TAP OR DIE is a feature-length documentary that tells the story of master hoofer Derick Grant. He brought in the funk with Savion Glover and now he’s determined to bring his own hip, rousing show—Imagine Tap!—to Broadway. It was a hit in Chicago, but the show faces a convoluted course of obstacles in the Big Apple—the ghosts of the Big Band era, the pitfalls of commerce, and an abiding legacy of racism. With an original score by STOMP phenom and Bessie winner Nicholas Young and performances by the world’s best tap dancers, including Bessie winner Michelle Dorrance and Emmy winner Jason Samuels Smith, TAP OR DIE is an ode to the genre, an indictment of the system, and a tribute to tappers and their struggle to get their feet back where they belong—on the Great White Way. Throw down the wood, Broadway!
