The joint is jumpin’ in this Tony Award-winning musical revue based on the life of Thomas “Fats” Waller. Step back to the Golden Age of Jazz, when places like the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom were havens for snappy swing music and snazzy jazz, and the stride piano infused the soulful energy of a generation. Taking its title from the 1929 Waller song, Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a lively tribute to the black musicians of the Harlem Renaissance, featuring 30 finger-snapping, toe-tapping numbers including “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Squeeze Me,” “Handful of Keys,” “It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie” and “The Joint is Jumpin’.” October 9 – November 4; International City Theatre, Long Beach Performing Arts Center, 300 East Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802; $29-$44; (562) 436-4610; www.InternationalCityTheatre.org
