Jan. 20, 2011 - PRLog -- Tony Award®-winner Ain’t Misbehavin’ runs April 2 to 30 at BIG ARTS Strauss Theater. Performances are Tuesday through Saturday, and start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 for adults, $20 for child 16 and under.

At the height of the historic Harlem Renaissance, venues like The Cotton Club were jumpin’ to a new beat called “swing.” Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a rollicking, finger-snapping, toe-tapping musical revue—a tribute to the black entertainers of the early 1900s that centers on the music of one of the most prolific musicians of the time, Thomas “Fats” Waller.

This show features 30 famous, high-energy tunes including “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Black and Blue,” and “The Joint is Jumpin’.”

Ain’t Misbehavin’ is supported by Strauss Theater Season Sponsor The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and Sponsor John Grey Painting and The Cedar Chest Fine Jewelry.

The Strauss Theater, a program of BIG ARTS, is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. For tickets and discounted subscription rates call BIG ARTS Marks Box Office at (239) 395-0900, or Strauss Theater box office at (239) 472-6862.

Tickets are available at all three box office locations: BIG ARTS Center at 900 Dunlop Road, Gallery & Gift Shop and Box Office at 2244 Periwinkle Way, or the Strauss Theater at 2200 Periwinkle Way.
