ESCONDIDO–The California Center for the Arts, Escondido will present Ain’t Misbehavin’: The Fats Waller Musical Show in partnership with North Coast Repertory Theatre.
Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a sassy, sultry celebration of legendary jazz great, Fats Waller. This roof-raising musical tribute will transport audiences to the glory days of the Harlem Renaissance with a versatile cast that struts, strums, and sings the songs that Waller made famous during his storied career including, “Honeysuckle Rose,” “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter,” “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” and dozens more.
After the Thursday show, audiences will have the opportunity to participate in a talkback with Murray Horwitz, who conceived and co-wrote Ain’t Misbehavin, Yvette Freeman, the Director of Ain’t Misbehavin’, and David Ellenstein, the Artistic Director at North Coast Repertory Theatre.
The Desert Star Weekly raves, “Ain’t Misbehavin’ has enough musical energy and pizzaz to light up all of San Diego County.” Fine Magazine praises the show for being “a wild, high-energy ride from start to finish.”
