About the Show
An award-winning musical revue which pays tribute to the Black musicians of the Harlem Renaissance.
Set in 1920s America, Ain't Misbehavin' celebrates the Black musicians who performed in the Manhattan nightclubs and were part of the Harlem Renaissance, a time of great creativity and passion. The original Broadway production won the 1978 Tony Award for Best New Musical. Tyrone Huntley (The View Upstairs, Jesus Christ Superstar) makes his directorial debut with this show!
Yes, there are moments when you want a bit more context, a sniff of story, but such worries fade away...great singing, dancing and staging unite to ensure this music speaks for itself with irresistible eloquence.
This production... is ridiculously good fun, and is utterly transportive to the great age of jazz...Whether or not you were a Fats Waller fan when you arrived, you’re sure to be by the time you leave.
