Randolph Road Theater

7:30 pm

$12 General Admission

Ryan P. Casey's "Tall Tales" uses his towering 6' 8" talent to present engaging, inventive, rhythm-based tap work that is at turns thoughtful, comical, and satirical. Incorporating rhythm, poetry, humor and more, Casey playfully lampoons his height, parodies his pilgramage to Manhattan, and doffs a top hat to idol Fred Astaire, all to a soundtrack including Shel Silverstein, Frank Sinatra, and Fats Waller. Peppered with musings on life and dance, "Tall Tales" takes tap dancing to new heights as Casey's debut solo show. http://ryanpcasey.com/schedule/
