Harlem Swing – Ain’t Misbehavin’ – a colorful swinging tribute to black musicians of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s & 30s comes to Israel with performances in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa. Taking its name from the 1929 Fats Waller song, the musical revue was written by Richard E. Maltby and Murray Horowitz, with choreography by Albert Faria and the music of legendary pianist Fats Waller arranged by Luther Henderson.

  1. Saw it on Broadway and wasn’t impressed. I guess we’ve gotten spoiled and used-to expecting a musical to be a major knock-your-socks-off block-buster. This is good-fun entertainment whereas the heavyweight musicals blend musical theater into an unmistakable & unforgettable art form in which the whole is greater than the parts. Ain’t Misbehavin’ has great music, super-talented performers and professional staging. That should be more than sufficient for most audiences. I guess I’m spoiled.
