35 Years Ago
In the September 1982 issue of Dance
Magazine, we reported on Tommy Tune’s
unexpected role change from dancer to director.
The then 43-year-old Tune confessed his struggle
to make a living as a performer after his claim-
to-fame performance in Seesaw (1973), and how
his shift to directing got him back on his feet.
His 1982 musical Nine won five Tony Awards and
was one of the hottest Broadway shows of the
‘80s. Though Tune admitted that he would always
choose performing over directing, he added,
“We should know that it’s not always a straight
line from here to there...it’s the squiggles in life
that make it interesting. Don’t you think?” Tune
received a Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement
in the Theatre in 2015 and is touring with Chita
Rivera in Chita and Tune: Two for the Road,
beginning this month.
