Thomas "Fats" Waller
Richard Maltby, Jr., Murray Horwitz
Highlighting the prodigious comic and musical soul of 1930s Harlem, this sassy, finger-snapping revue features the sometimes rowdy but always delightful songs of the inimitable “Fats” Waller. Evoking a time when Manhattan nightclubs such as The Cotton Club and The Savoy Ballroom were the rage of high society, a versatile cast struts, swings, and energizes the music Waller made famous from downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood to American and international concert stages. Hailed by critics as perhaps the most popular and well crafted Broadway revue of all time, it weaves a “traveling party” theme with songs infused with the joys, heartaches and humor of man/woman relationships, among these, Lookin’ Good But Feelin’ Bad, Honeysuckle Rose, I’ve Got a Feeling I’m Falling, Cash for Your Trash, Squeeze Me, Jitterbug Waltz, I’m Gonnna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter, I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,and It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie. The title song reminds us that although we may deny “misbehavin’” – “one never knows, does one?”
