  • This event has passed.

Prospect House Entertainment, In Partnership with Glendale Arts, and In Association with the Tony Nicholas Family, presents The Nicholas Brothers Tribute.

Hollywood’s greatest tap-dance team will be honored in a star-studded gala event, live at the historic 1400-seat Alex Theatre in Glendale, California. Join us as we chronicle Fayard and Harold Nicholas’ rise to fame and stardom, from their humble beginnings in Philadelphia to pioneering and redefining the tap genre.

This one night only, special event will feature Q&As with Nicholas family members, celebrity friends and co-stars, rare and never-before-seen home movie footage, movie trailers, clips from their dazzling feature film performances, dramatic on-stage reenactments from landmark moments in their lives, and amazing tap numbers performed by the very best dancers in the country. The event is choreographed by the peerless Cathie Nicholas, Fayard’s granddaughter, and written and directed by Tegan Summer.

Hosted by Emmy Award winner Stan Taffel, the gala evening’s special guests, in addition to Nicholas family members, include Nichelle Nichols (“Lieutenant Uhura” in the Star Trek television series); Gloria Hendry (“Rosie Carver” in the Roger Moore James Bond classic Live and Let Die); band leader and tap dancer Chester Whitmore; tap dancer, choreographer, and director Jason Samuels Smith; and dancer Desmond Richardson.
