“I like the fact that Let’s Misbehave isn’t just a revue,” says Shelton, an ICT regular who audiences will recognize from productions of Master Class, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Songs for a New World, Five Course Love, The Story, Honk! and Swinging on a Star. “It’s very witty and a lot of fun. All the old Cole Porter favorites we know and love are there – but there are also some obscure songs that many people won’t recognize.”
