This musical revue -- many say the musical revue -- showcases the irrepressible spunk, sheer talent, and musical range of Thomas "Fats" Waller. At the North Coast Rep, all five performers (Cynthia Thomas, Ron Christopher Jones, Anise Ritchie, Tony Perry, and Yvonne, are triple-threats, able to sing, dance, and develop characters. The five-piece band, led b pianist Kevin Toney's flashy Waller-licks and Julian Davis's trumpet, add quality musicianship. Critic's Pick.
