AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ (The Wick Theatre: 5/8-6/1-Boca Raton))
* AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ (The Wick Theatre: 5/8-6/1-Boca Raton).
One of Jeff Eats’ all-time favorite musicals- is AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’.
I maybe a bit biased here, in that my good buddy Ron Dante (www.rondante.com) who in addition to being Barry Manilow, Cher and Pat Benatar’s producer- who sang lead on the hits- “Tracy” and “Sugar Sugar”…produced Broadway’s-The Fats Waller Musical Show AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’–but I don’t think so! Just for good measure, Tony Award Winner-Ron also produced Broadway’s “Children Of A Lesser God.”–talk about a talent!
When you really think about it-a show revolving around 1920’s-1930’s Black Harlem musicians and featuring songs (see below) can’t be anything but terrific…

I saw this show years ago on Broadway.
It’s a great show.
On Ron Dante, a couple of years ago he performed at the Woodfield Country Club in Boca. He was there for 2 nights and performed at the Club’s Season Opener.
He is a great performer and a great personality.
Everyone in the Club wanted to take pictures with the Lead Singer of The Archies..
The Wick family have done a great job reviving the venue [the old Caldwell theatre]. Got half price same day tickets on WLRN Cultural Connection and saw the show on Saturday. It was nothing short of terrific. Tip- Enter from Dixie to avoid the jam up from Federal
