Project Description

Memories

A tour of a double-bill of Bobby McFerrin (“Don’t Worry, Be Happy“) and Savion Glover (Legendary Tap Dancer) , two celebrated entertainers, an artistic marriage in a crafted culture clash.  Largely improvised with only a few structured numbers, the show toured the USA in 2004 too critical acclaim.  Produced by Clint Mitchell for William Morris Agency, with Nederlander Worldwide Entertainment in association with Savion Worldwide LLC.   I was Executive Producer and General Manager, toured with the show as it’s onsite manager.
