Coleman Watching Tap

Director Jim Coleman watches choreographer Evelyn Barney put her students through their paces at the first "tap dance school lesson" for 42ND STREET. Knowing that he would have a difficult time finding tappers in California's Central Valley, Coleman arranged for the "school" for prospective cast members. The classes continued for six weeks before the show's auditions.
