Solana Beach, Calif. AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ is a roof-raising musical tribute to the black musicians of the ‘20s and ‘30s. Based on the signature Fats Waller song, this rousing musical revue takes audiences back to the glory days of the Harlem Renaissance when the Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom served as playgrounds for high society. You’ll be tapping your feet as five performers take you on a journey, presenting an evening of rowdy, raunchy, and humorous songs. Directed by Yvette Freeman, known for her work as a television actress in the medical drama series “ER”, who replaced Nell Carter in the original Broadway production of AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’. Later, Ms. Freeman went on to direct the show all over the country.
