Wasn't sure what to expect but the voices and dancing of the people on stage was phenomenal! They really captured the time period and what terrific performers they are. I really like the venue as well. Smaller than a lot of other theaters but that made it ever the more intimate.
At the height of the historic Harlem Renaissance, venues like The Cotton Club were jumpin’ to a new beat called “swing.” Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a rollicking, finger-snapping, toe-tapping, Tony Award-winning musical revue — a tribute to the black entertainers of the early 1900s that centers on the music of one of the most prolific musicians of the time, Thomas “Fats” Waller. Ain’t Misbehavin’ is vibrantly told with infectious energy and the cheeky humor for which Waller was known. Ain’t Misbehavin’ features 30 famous, high-energy tunes including the title song, “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Black and Blue” and “The Joint is Jumpin’.”
