Ain’t Misbehavin’ follows legendary jazz pianist Fats Waller and his cohorts in 1930s Harlem as they create a flurry of infectious hits that set the soundtrack to the Harlem Renaissance. The show, which first opened on Broadway in 1978, went on to win a Tony Award for Best Musical and spawn a Broadway revival and a national tour starring the Pointer Sisters. The production is anchored by tunes that capture Waller’s love of life, including “Honeysuckle Rose” and the title track, which both skip along with juke-joint keys and playfully romantic lyrics.

About Lehman Center for the Performing Arts
Lehman Center for the Performing Arts hosts a lot of firsts. From Jose Feliciano to Russian music institutions, many performing artists have never played in the Bronx before they come to the Center. That reality is part of what prompted its founding in the first place three decades ago, in an effort to prove that borough residents didn't have to travel to Manhattan or tunnel inside their television sets to experience diverse, live cultural programming. So far, that's included concerts by luminaries such as Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle, and Johnny Mathis in addition to folk dance, ballet, and Latino comedy showcases.
