Maurice Hines: Bring Them Back is a portrait of a trailblazing entertainer, a charismatic song-and-dance man from his tap-dancing childhood to today. Maurice and friends—Chita Rivera, Mercedes Ellington and Debbie Allen—tell tales from his seven-decade career, including Broadway shows, a co-starring role in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Cotton Club and about his loving yet complex relationship with his superstar brother, the late Gregory Hines. Ever battling the challenges of being a gay, black man in show biz, Maurice shares his story with humour and grace. An intimate look at the legacy of an underappreciated Black legend of New York City’s Broadway and dance superstar, in a delightful documentary that wonderfully weaves together his past as a performer and his present as a teacher and mentor.
