Ain't Misbehavin'

February 9 – March 4, 2018

AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’

This show brings to life the whole world that Fats Waller lived in and largely represented: Harlem in the 30s – the Golden Age of places like The Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom, the honky-tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, of rent parties, of stride piano players and the new beat, swing. Come, be a part of the Harlem nightclub stage, where you’ll find a whole sense of jazz worlds – uptown and downtown, raffish and posh, funny and startlingly beautiful.
