Ain’t Misbehavin’ — the Tony award winning musical — is a journey through the Fats Waller Songbook and Harlem in its heyday. With snazzy period costumes, complete with bowlers, spats, ermine, and pearls, the dynamic five-member cast transforms the theater into a Harlem jazz hall.
When Ain’t Misbehavin’ opened on Broadway it won four Tony Awards, including Best Musical. “The opening night audience almost knocked the roof off with cheers” reported William Glover in the Associated Press. Time Magazine called it a “stompin’, struttin’, high hattin’ smash” and Clive Barnes predicted Ain’t Misbehavin’ would be “A joyous celebration that is going to cross the world.” That time is now, with this exciting new production.
“Ain’t Misbehavin’ has a first act that will knock your ears off and a second that will come back for the rest of you.” said Walter Kerr of the New York Times.
Ain’t Misbehavin’ is produced by Irving Street Rep, Curtis Farrow and Ron Lucas, Founders; and presented by Artbeat, Inc. a not-for-profit company.
