Posted on October 6, 2011 /Theater


October 6th – October 23rd in New Brunswick, NJ

New Jersey’s Tony Award-winning Crossroads Theater Company is reviving the 1978 musical Ain’t Misbehavin’— a musical revue about the jazz musicians who were apart of the Harlem Renaissance during the ’20s and ’30s, with songs associated with Thomas Wright “Fats” Waller.

Rousing musical of the toe-tapping favorites of jazzman Fats Waller, directed by original Broadway cast member André DeShields. Experience the glory of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and ’30s, when high-society Manhattan nightclubs like the Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom with piano players banging out the new beat known as swing.

The cast includes Tyrone Davis Jr. ( André), Zurin Villanueava (Charlaine), Rheaume Crenshaw (Nell), Johmaalya Adelekan (Armelia), and Jacob Ming-Trent.
