ONLY THREE MORE SHOWS: two on April 30, 2022 and one on May 1, 2022. And then all the fun is ended. Don't miss it!
Click on the show of choice and purchase reserved general admission for $20 per seat or choose your exact seat in the first three rows for $30 per seat.
We hope our new original show will help you joyously breaking free, at least for 75 minutes, from this often-grim time to make you smile, laugh, applaud and tap your own feet to the rhythm.
The show opened to a rousing welcome on April 23 and 24.
In our story, a weary traveler stumbles on a dance oasis in the remote California desert, an area patrolled by a surprisingly large and mustachioed police force that has apparently never managed to discover this mysterious resort, where, it seems, everyone can dance and everyone has a past. Is this Hotel Tapifornia real? Is it good or evil? Can it be saved? What will happen when a gathering of angry extremists descends upon this corner of the desert for one of their rallies? We will have plot twists and comic moments, but mostly lots of tap dancing.
We encourage you to purchase your tickets as soon as possible – there is the possibility that one or more shows will sell out during the final weekend.
VIP Reserved Seats: $30; Reserved General Admission: $20. Unreserved general admission at the door is $25.
The location is the excellent Margo Albert Theater at the lovely Plaza de la Raza complex in Lincoln Park, just east of downtown: 3540 N Mission Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90031.
Parking is provided at the DMV lot directly across the street from the theater. There is a $1 parking fee per ticket, but no additional charge for this spectacular parking once you arrive.
We’d also love to have your help getting the word out about this show. You can find and share social media posts about the show on the Facebook page of Tap Dance with Howard Blume.
You can click here for a Spectrum TV feature from Dec. 2019 about "Tapwater," our previous show. And here is a newspaper article about this earlier show.
A note on COVID safety: We will ask all audience members to wear masks inside the theater lobby and theater. And we will happily provide you with a brand-new mask if you forget your own. (The performers will not be wearing masks on stage.)
Why are we requiring masks? The show is only 75 minutes, so even mask-haters can endure masks for that long, and we want to provide reassurance for those just stepping back out in the world as well as for those at higher risk. We appreciate your understanding on this point.
There's lots of information about our tap program at tapwithhoward.com.
(Note: Below this entry is archival information about our previous full-scale show.)
Thanks for your enthusiasm and support. So glad we got this show in prior to the pandemic.
