BET Presents "My Brother's Keeper"

There's a new show at the Black Ensemble Theatre (4520 North Beacon), and the Loyola Phoenix likes it a lot:

On March 21, Uptown’s Black Ensemble Theatre released a heart-warming solution to the post-winter blues with My Brother’s Keeper.  Written by Rueben Echoles and produced by theater founder, Jackie Taylor, My Brother’s Keeper: The Story of the Nicholas Brothers is a musical tribute to the most famous tap dancing team of the twentieth century, Harold (Echoles) and Fayard Nicholas (Rashawn Thompson). Throughout the play, audience members follow the dancers on their journey from Harlem to Hollywood. ... My Brother's Keeper is a performance for history buffs, musical fans and anyone looking for a good time. Leaving the theater after the show, one cannot help but feel energized. The weather this spring might disappoint some Chicagoans, but My Brother's Keeper will ease the pain.
