His effervescent personality shines as he chats easily with the audience, making them feel a part of the magic!

Maurice Hines

Beginning his career alongside his late brother, the great Gregory Hines, the duo became household names as they toured extensively as the opening act for great performers like Lionel Hampton and Gypsy Rose Lee. The duo also enjoyed a hugely popular Las Vegas residency with a 'Hines, Hines and Dad' where the pair were joined by their father on stage. The show was such a hit that they toured it throughout Europe and appeared on TV shows like The Pearl Bailey Show, The Hollywood Palace, and The Tonight Show. 

Deciding to go solo in the late 70s Hines starred in the national tour of Guys and Dolls as Nathan Detroit, before returning to Broadway in Eubie! Hines' other Broadway credits include The Girl in Pink Tights (1954), Bring Back Birdie, Sophisticated Ladies (1981) and Uptown...It's Hot! (1986) for which he garnered the Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
