CHICAGO -- Chicago's staid old Shubert Theatre has assumed a new "cool" with such footloose spectacles as Stomp and Tap Dogs. Beginning June 16, the joint will jump again with the aptly-named Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk, the tap-dancing labor of love created by dancer Savion Glover and director George C. Wolfe. Wolfe explains the concept and his collaborator: "From generation to generation, African-American tap dancers taught each other their steps. The old-timers passed on their information to Savion, and it landed in his feet, his being, and his soul. Reinventing these steps, he has created a new form of tap, and through his choreography, he is teaching tap to a new generation of dancers."

The beat goes on. The 1996 Broadway production, winner of nine Tony Award nominations and still filling the Ambassador Theater, hits the Windy City in a national touring production that runs through July 12.
