It's Harlem in the 1920's, the heyday of jazz, honky-tonk and the birth of swing, the crowning glory of ragtime and the stride pianists along Lenox Avenue in New York City. Nightlife is booming in the Savoy Ballroom and the Cotton Club where African-American performers like Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway and Thomas 'Fats' Waller strut their stuff for the most exclusive crowds. The show is Ain't Misbehavin' and it is now running through Sept. 8 at The Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, Emerson Park, Auburn.
Set in an exclusive club, Ain't Misbehavin' takes show-goers into the world of Thomas 'Fats' Waller with songs he composed or recorded during his illustrious career. Five versatile and talented performers shine in Waller's standards including "Honeysuckle Rose," "Your Feets Too Big," "Mean to Me," "T'aint Nobody's Business If I Do," and "Ain't Misbehavin'."
