Delve into the life, times and performances of jazz legend and scat singer extraordinaire Cab Calloway at this rousing production from Texas Family Musicals. Known as "The Hi De Ho Man" for a catchy lyric in his hit song "Minnie the Moocher," Calloway mesmerized adoring crowds in the swing era with his onstage gyrations and unparalleled showmanship, cranking out such big band hits as "Reefer Man," "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "How Big Can You Get?" Enjoy performances of those songs and others during Cab Calloway Story, which also mixes in the fascinating story of Calloway's life, from his rudderless roots in Baltimore's Sugar Hill neighborhood to his rise to fame at Harlem's famous Cotton Club.

I grew up in the 50s & 60s so it was good to hear all those old Rock 'n Roll songs that had stories and you can understand the words! The cast was excellent! They were excellent in the Roy Orbison show 2 weeks ago, but they really outdid themselves on this! How do they maintain all that energy? The production and the choreography were excellent as well!
I live in Irving so I really appreciate the convenience of the show being in the Uptown in Grand Prairie.
