Maurice Hines' new show Tappin' Thru Life at New World Stages will play its final performance this Sunday, February 21. At the time of closing the show will have played 21 previews and 46 performances. The show began previews December 23 and opened January 11.

"I have had an absolute ball bringing Maurice Hines Tappin' Thru Life to New York," said Hines in a statement. "Since my brother and mother made their transition, I have been lonely but keeping them alive every night has been one of the greatest joys of my life. I am truly appreciative for all of the love and support that I receive nightly from audiences."

Hines leads the cast of the musical revue, directed by Jeff Calhoun, which features the all-female Diva Jazz Orchestra, led by drummer Sherrie Maricle, the tap-dancing brothers Leo and John Manzari, and a rotating cast of up-and-coming tappers Luke Spring, Dario Natarelli, and sisters Julia and Devin Ruth.

The musical arrived in New York following a 2013 coproduction with Arena Stage and Alliance Theatre. The production features set design by Tobin Ost, sound design by Michael Hahn, lighting design by Michael Gilliam, and projection design by Darrel Maloney.
