Ain’t Misbehavin’ June 6 - August 31

[caption id="attachment_3664" align="alignright" width="250"]Ain't Misbehavin' Ain't Misbehavin'[/caption] In Ain’t Misbehavin’, the soul of 1930s Harlem is captured in this finger-snapping and toe tapping revue. Thomas “Fats” Waller was an iconic musical force, known for his exuberant personality, energetic stride-piano playing, infectious humor and jumping beat. Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes his good-time joie-de-vivre as a versatile cast sings, dances and carries on to the songs he made famous: Jitterbug Waltz, This Joint Is Jumpin’, Your Feets Too Big, Spreadin’ Rhythm Around, Keepin’ Out of Mischief Now, Honeysuckle Rose and, of course, Ain’t Misbehavin’. Sassy, silly, sultry and with moments of devastating beauty. Oregon Cabaret Theatre hits the spot if you're looking for fun, talented and snazzy-jazzy entertainment.  One of Ashland's performing arts venues that have shows on Monday nights! June 6 – August 31 Previews June 4 & 5 Performances Wednesday – Monday @ 8:00 (no show July 4) Sunday Brunch matinees @ 1:00 For more information visit Oregon Cabaret Theatre's website
