Let Porchlight Music Theatre's Ain't Misbehavin' transport you back in time to the golden age of jazz, when hot spots like the Cotton Club played host to the music of 1930s Harlem, and where swing music, jazz and stride piano infused the entire country with renewed energy. This Tony Award-winning show is a song-filled celebration of the timeless music of Thomas "Fats" Waller, who penned more than 400 songs during his career -- many of which have entered the classic repertoire of jazz standards still popular today. An energetic ensemble of talented performers brings down the house with a musical parade of Fats Waller's most popular hits -- rowdy, raunchy, humorous songs that encapsulate the moods of an era and reflect Waller's view of life as a journey meant for pleasure and play.

A kooky and spooky journey into the macabre, Macabaret is a collection of humorous songs, which twist towards the morbid. Murderous spouses, horror films, evil cows, supermodels and global warming are just a few of the things parodied by a "Corpse de Cabaret" of the undead. Porchlight Music Theatre presented the world premiere of this original revue in 1995 and presents a revised edition for 2009. This marks the 15th Anniversary of both the musical Macabaret and Porchlight Music Theatre Chicago.
“Porchlight is proud to present the return of Macabaret, resurrecting a show popular with our audiences and perfect for the Halloween season,” comments Artistic Director L. Walter Stearns. “Critics and audiences praised Porchlight’s 2005 version. We present this devilishly delightful musical revue as part of our 15th anniversary celebration and as testament to the fun and well-crafted work that we have presented over the course of those fifteen seasons.”
