Touring Theatre of North Carolina celebrates one of America’s greats with its original cabaret/biography Duke Ellington Uptown.   Five actors, accompanied by piano, upright bass and drums, sing, scat and strut sixteen of the Duke’s remarkable classics.  While biographical and historical facts are woven throughout the music, the overall piece shines as a delightful evening of song.
