Facts

  • As a joke he often says that he is 5’18½” tall.
  • Was the mentor of Broadway actress/singer Susan Egan. While performing in the revival of “Bye, Bye Birdie” he told her how much he loved the way she sang her first song and would often sing along with her as a vocal warm-up while he was in a costume change. The song was “How Lovely To Be A Woman”. Although Egan considered that to be a great compliment she could not get the image of him singing that song in his underwear backstage out of her mind.
  • In the title role of Doctor Dolittle at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in Houston, Texas. [January 2006]
  • He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Live Theatre at 1777 Vine Street in Hollywood, California.
  • Sister, Gracey Tune, is an award-winning dancer and owner of a popular multi-arts studio in Fort Worth, Texas.
  • Attended Lamar High School in Houston, Texas.
  • Tommy and Sandy Duncan tried to put a musical version of the classic MGM film Easter Parade (1948) together but it never got off the ground. What they did do is star in “Two for the Show” in 1998. They presented a double bill of their musical touring acts into a single evening. Tommy took the first act and Sandy Duncan most of the second act. They then joined for the big finale which showed some of their numbers from the abandoned “Easter Parade”. Tune worked with Duncan before — in “My One and Only” in 1985 and, before that, as a 19-year-old dance partner to the 12 year old Duncan in Texas.
  • His autobiography, Footnotes (1997), details his personal relationships with stage manager David Wolfe, who died of AIDS in 1994, and actor/costumer Michael Stuart (1943-1997), with whom Tune lived for seven years.
  • In Houston, Texas, the Tommy Tune Award recognizes excellence in high school musical theater.
  • Once worked as assistant choreographer on TV’s The Dean Martin Show (1965).
  • His dream of playing Las Vegas finally came true in 1999 when he debuted as the star of EFX at the MGM Grand Hotel.
  • In 1991, he was inducted by Gwen Verdon into the Theatre Hall of Fame in Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre, and three years later was honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
  • Recipient of eight Drama Desk Awards, two Obie Awards, Dance Magazine’s Award for Lifetime Achievement; the 1990 American Dance Award (presented by the National Academy of Dance); the 1990 Drama League Musical Theatre Award for Direction and Choreography; the Astaire Award in both 1990 and 1991; the George Abbott Award for Lifetime Achievement, the University of Texas’ Distinguished Alumnus Award; and the Jean Cocteau International Style Award. He was also named to the Top 10 International Best Dressed List of 1992.
  • He majored in drama at the University of Texas (BFA) and the University of Houston (MFA).
  • Despite the fact that he and Sandy Duncan had worked so well together on stage in “My One and Only,” they failed to get a theatre adaptation of the Judy Garland and Fred Astaire film classic Easter Parade (1948) off the ground in the late 1990’s. This was primarily because Irving Berlin’s daughters (who control his estate) were unhappy with workshop productions.
