Maurice Hines: Bring Them Back John Carluccio’s new feature-length documentary offers a portrait of veteran song-and-dance man Maurice Hines, tracing his journey from a tap-dancing childhood to his life today, in his late 70s, as an elder statesman of dance.

Former colleagues Chita Rivera, Mercedes Ellington and Debbie Allen also appear. 8 p.m. Starz

Onstage, in his striped Armani jacket, Maurice Hines looks like the zebra god, an ageless figure able to sing, dance and tell stories with equal aplomb.
