“My Brother’s Keeper-The Story of the Nicholas Brothers” left Me wanting More!

*** Recommended *** Black Ensemble Theater’s new production, “My Brother’s Keeper-The Story of the Nicholas Brothers” is well done, but it left me wanting more.  Since “My Brother’s Keeper” was about dancers, I wanted to see more dancing.   As is often the case at Black Ensemble, the singers and dancers are consistently strong, while the story lines seem like segues between the musical numbers.  3 Spotlights
