Product Description:

Max, a recently released con, is an ex-hoofer intent on forgetting his tap roots. Crime has paid Max extremely well. But now that he is back on the street after a stint in prison, Max faces an uneasy future, trapped between two very different pasts. Actor-tap dancer extraordinare Gregory Hines plays Max with depth and gusto in what turns out to be a star making performance. In fact, the American Film Institute lists TAP on its list of "Star Performances."

Gregory Hines, Savion Glover and a host of brilliant old-time hoofers (including Sammy Davis, Jr.) star in this musical that showcases the individuality, the style and the history of tapdancing.
