The Clark Center for the Performing Arts presents the stompin’, struttin’, highhattin’ smash Broadway hit Ain’t Misbehavin’, on Friday, November 18, 2011 at 8pm and Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 2pm.

You don’t have to be a jazz buff to enjoy Ain’t Misbehavin’. Like Fats Waller himself, you just have to love a good time! This fast paced romp takes you where the high-steppers partied, from honky-tonk dives to the Cotton Club, from Tin Pan Alley to The Waldorf. It’s a night of entertainment you won’t soon forget.

Ain’t Misbehavin’ is an extraordinary musical because it encompasses 30 show-stopping numbers that take you on a journey not only through the Fats Waller song book, but through Harlem in its heyday. With snazzy period costumes, complete with bowlers and spats and ermine and pearls the dynamic five-member cast turns Jazz Alley into a rollicking rent party.

When Ain’t Misbehavin’ opened on Broadway, it made history by winning every Tony award, including best musical. “The opening night audience almost knocked the roof off with cheers,” reported William Glover in the Associated Press. Time Magazine called it “a stompin’, struttin’ high hattin’ smash and Clive Barnes predicted Ain’t Misbehavin’ would be “a joyous celebration that is going to cross the world.”

That time is now, with this exciting new production of the award-winning musical at the Clark Center on November 18 and 19!
