SDMT’s Ain’t Misbehavin’
San Diego Musical Theatre presents Ain't Misbehavin’! September 27 - October 13 at Birch North Park Theatre. The outrageously prodigious comic and musical soul of 1930’s Harlem lives on in this rollicking, swinging, finger-snapping revue that is still considered one of Broadway's best. The inimitable Thomas “Fats” Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin’ new beat, Swing. Although not quite a biography, Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs he made famous in a career. The cast features Sylvia MacCalla as Nell, Rufus Bonds, Jr. as Ken, Jenell Randall as Charlaine, David LaMarr as Andre, and Amber Mercomes as Armelia. For tickets and information go to www.sdmt.org.
