Monty Python’s Spamalot is a musical comedy “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Ain’t Misbehavin’ at The Athenaeum Theater September 20-30

Ain’t Misbehavin’ at The Athenaeum Theater
September 21-30

The inimitable Thomas “Fats” Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin’ new beat, Swing. Although not quite a biography, AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Assembled under the expert eye of director of Brenda Williams, AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time. Sometimes sassy, sometimes sultry, with moments of devastating beauty, AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ is simply unforgettable.

Tickets start at $15.

THEY COME BACK “The wait is over!!!” Mel Waiters Show

With songs like, ‘I Ain’t Gon’ Do It’ (which his male audience is really relating to) and the title cut ‘They Come Back’, he is definitely letting you know that he knows what his audience loves. And, that’s good southern soul lyrics and music that makes any juke joint jump. Mel’s collaborative cut with Cupid, ‘Barbeque’ is a real house pleaser. Not to mention the song that makes us forget about the economy and just party, ‘Everything’s Going Up’. Mel Waiters never fails to bring a fresh sound a new look to and good old’ feeling. He brings a PARTY! Enjoy!!

Tickets start at $20.
