‘Ain’t Misbehavin’ Has Audiences Toe-tapping at Pistarckle

Pistarckle Theater kicked-off its 2019-2020 season this past weekend with the Tony Award Winning Musical “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” the fabulous Fats Waller musical. The production stars: Shantelle Eddy, Jada M. Lark, Sabrina Lettsome, Jervina Dowers and Alwyn Thomas.

The cast of “Ain’t Misbehavin'” perform at Pistarckle Theater to open this year’s theater season.

Set in an uptown Harlem Jazz Club during an era of growing creativity, cultural awareness and piano players introducing high society to a new sound called “swing,” “Ain’t Misbehavin’” encompasses all of the fun and excitement of partying until the sun comes up through toe-tapping, finger snapping, boisterous, sexy and hilarious songs.

“This fast-paced showcase of over 30 tunes by Fats Waller will knock your socks off in the first act and come back for the rest of you in the second!” (Walter Kerr – New York Times).

Directed by Frank Bartolucci, choreographed by Mary Capellas and with a seven-piece swing band directed by Robert Leonard, “Ain’t Misbehavin’” continues its run at 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26. There will be two matinee performances at 2 p.m., Sundays, Oct. 13 and 20.
