Tell Me Somethin' Good

When: Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 3 p.m. Continues through Sept. 20 2015

Taking a stroll down memory lane, as they say, is good for the soul, whether your recollections date back a few years or several decades. With music, it's far easier to transport ourselves to the past. The revue Tell Me Somethin' Good dances, swings and moves through the years, from the birth of doo-wop to the ascension of hip-hop. This popular show was conceived by the Black Rep's founder and producing director Ron Himes, and it opens the Black Rep's new season at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.theblackrep.org). Performances take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday (September 2 through 20; no Wednesday show on September 16). Tickets are $20 to $30.
