“If you can walk, you can dance. If you can talk, you can sing” is the lesson passed on to young attendees of the fictional Roots Summer Academy in the history-meets-cabaret musical Roots Revival. Directed by Cathryn McGill and Kristen Loree, this Rainbow Studio of Albuquerque production embraces the entirety of the African-American experience, from the slave passage from West Africa to the first African-American president, in a series of vignettes, all enlivened with song. Roots Revival takes to the Lensic Performing Arts Center stage (211 W. San Francisco St.) at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 7. Tickets, $22.50, are available by calling 505-988-1234 or visiting www.ticketssantafe.org.
