Ain't Misbehavin' is tribute to the African-American musicians of the 1920s and '30s who were part of the Harlem Renaissance: an era of growing creativity, cultural awareness, and ethnic pride. Five performers present an evening of rowdy and humorous songs that celebrates the music of Thomas "Fats" Waller who rose international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin' new beat, Swing.
Although not quite a biography, "Ain't Misbehavin'" evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of "Fats" Waller as the cast struts, strums and sings the songs he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The musical captures the spirit and joyousness of the Renaissance music and showcases classic Waller tunes like "Honeysuckle Rose," "I've Got a Feeling I'm Falling" and, of course, the title song, "Ain't Misbehavin'."
Join us for this rollicking, swinging, finger-snapping revue, still considered one of Broadway's best, as the Coleman Auditorium is transformed into a nightclub, reminiscent of the famous Manhattan nightclubs of the late 1920s & 1930s like the Cotton Club and The Savoy Ballroom.
