A musical revue of unbridled joy and sassy repartee
Step back into the sparkling nightlife of a 1930s jazz club in this celebration of the jazz legend Fats Waller. From Uptown to Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood, Waller’s music helped define the swinging sound of the Golden Age of the Cotton Club. Music, dance, sassy repartee, and a whole lot of fun with 29 famous songs including “‘T Ain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I Do”, “Honeysuckle Rose”, “The Joint is Jumpin’”, and “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love”.
Opening at the Syracuse Stage with performances from March 1 playing through March 26
