03 Mar Review: Ain’t Misbehavin’
Review by David Marlowe
The joint is jumpin’ over at Vintage Theatre! Their production of “Ain’t Misbehavin”,’ the Fats Waller revue that pays tribute to the composers of the Harlem Renaissance, is exhilarating. Donnie l.

Duane Carrington’s (Ken) hilarious rendition of “Your Feet’s Too Big” and “Fat and Greasy” are deliciously funny as well as being animated with exuberant vitality. Leonard E Barrett Jr.’s (Andre) sinuous, serpentine singing of “The Viper’s Drag,” an homage to reefer weed, is smokin’ smooth and unashamedly racy.
