More Information



Approximate running time: 2 hours with 1 intermission

The mighty entertaining Fats Waller classic presented by Broadway in Bronzeville is an intoxicating combination of a dry martini and a dirty joke, savored over the sassiest 1930s era jazz. The Tony Award®-winning musical will have you tappin’ your feet, shoutin out, and wanting more when it ends.
