Marty Lewis, who was in both opening casts of Hello, Hollywood, Hello and Jubilee as a black male dancer, shares his story of being a black Showboy in Donn Arden’s MGM productions. 

We discuss the joys and privileges of being part of the casts of Showgirl production shows, where entertainment has gone today and reminisced about many of the opportunities that were available to dancers in the 70s and 80s in America. He shares his perspectives on working as a choreographer and dancer around the world and how much the world of entertainment has changed in the last 40 years. Enjoy!
