Experience the glory of the Harlem Renaissance in a musical production brimming with “contagious energy” (The New York Times).
NJPAC and Crossroads Theatre Company team together for an encore presentation of Crossroads’ hit 2011 production of Ain’t Misbehavin’. Two-time Tony nominee and original cast member André De Shields (The Wiz) returns to direct and choreograph this acclaimed production of the Fats Waller Tony Award winning musical, conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Murray Horwitz.
The cast includes Johmaalya Adelekan (Ragtime), Rheaume Crenshaw (Groundhog Day), David Samuel (Ruined, Arena Stage), Zurin Villanueva (Mean Girls; Shuffle Along), and Borris York (Holiday Inn; Love Never Dies, U.S. tour).
Immerse yourself in the energetic, exuberant and effervescent music of Fats Waller and the world of the 1920s and ‘30s, from nightclubs like the Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom to the rent parties with stride piano players banging out a new beat known as swing!
