“a non stop source of rhythmic variety and surprise….sparks seem to fly from those shoes!”
"..exciting as ever.......Dynamite"
Admirable played by Dewitt Fleming Jr, the Jelly in the musical is charming, troubled, infuriating, and pitiable.
"Fleming, who turns out to be an excellent tap dancer as well as a drummer, joined them in a spiffy white blazer, showing off some truly impressive Broadway chops."
Charelston City Paper
"...doubled as vocalist and tap dancer, practically stealing the show with his dazzling moves and his interplay with the musicians, who quoted his steps and rhythms with their instruments"
"I remember getting happily lost in the constant changes of his rhythm and the drastic contrasts of his dynamics"
"..the highlight once again......a spectacular cutting contest......Amazing stuff!"
"Rockin' in Rhythm," which was choreographed by Fleming, was a perfect blend of the best aspects of Broadway tap with the swagger and shine of the street-infused contemporary tap style.
