Be Here Now: Jason Samuels Smith @ SPAC’s Little Theater, 5/28/10

Tap prodigy Jason Samuels Smith first gained widespread attention for his performances in Savion Glover’s Broadway hit “Bring in da Noise, Bring in da Funk” at the age of 15. Since then, he’s gone on to become an Emmy award-winning actor, director and choreographer. You may also have seen his featured guest performance on the popular television show “So You Think You Can Dance.”

Here he sets the floor on fire demonstrating what a new pair of shoes can do:

Tomorrow (Friday, May 28) Jason Samuels Smith and his crack tap troupe A.C.G.I. (Anyone Can Get It) are bringing their jazz-inspired, high-energy footwork to SPAC’s Little Theater in what promises to be an exciting program of original choreography as well as dazzling improvisations. The title A.C.G.I. represents Smith’s belief that “anybody can get better at what they do through hard work, dedication and commitment.” Tickets are just $25.

Heeeeyy, we have a pair of tickets to give away to this show! Just leave a comment letting us know what other performances you’re looking forward to this summer here in Nippertown. Barak Marshall’s Monger @ Jacob’s Pillow? José Limón @ SPAC? Be sure to leave a real email address (it won’t be published) so we can contact you if you win. We’ll pick a name at random tomorrow. Good luck! The random number generator has spoken. Congratulations, Karen!

    Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at Northern Lights, July 27! And the Carolina Chocolate Drops at MASS MoCA this weekend (and again at The Egg in September) and the whole Wilco affair at MoCa in August.

    I always look forward to seeing the NYC Ballet during their yearly summer residence at SPAC.

    This is the show I want to see. I saw him last year at the Pillow and that man can dance. Doesn’t my enthusiasm count for something?

    The Jazz Fest at SPAC is ususally one of the high points of my summer. Sachal Vasandani next weekend looks pretty cool, too.
