A swinging, rip-roaring musical tribute to the black musicians of the Harlem Renaissance, Ain't Misbehavin' opened on Broadway in 1978 as a musical revue of jazz legend Fats Waller's popular songbook, was nominated for numerous awards, and won the 1978 Tony for Best Musical.
For one night only, some of the most dynamic and diverse faces in American theater will join WeSoHapa for an evening of song and spoken-word performance that questions the nature of what it means to be American and multiracial.
"What is Hapa?" you might ask. By definition, the term refers to a person of part-Asian descent. However, Hapa has evolved to mean anyone who is two or more ethnicities. In the current political climate of this country, many are asking just what it means to be an American — or more frequently, "Who am I, and where do I fit in?"
WeSoHapa speaks not only to those of Asian descent but to all people who identify as multiethnic, question their identity, or simply wish to broaden their mind through an evening of thought-provoking entertainment.
Back in the good old days, freedom of speech went just so far and came at a cost. Censorship, especially in entertainment, was at its highest... even in private clubs. Blues singers had to seduce their audiences with clever lyrics, double entendres, and lots of food references to get around strict decency laws. Singer Rev. Mary and her Blue Crew unveil a steamy array of vintage bawdy blues paying homage to performers like Mae West, Sophie Tucker, Bessie Smith, Rosa Henderson, Ruth Brown, Stella Johnson ... and Barrel House Annie, to name a few. You'll be amazed at all the hidden meanings "grease my griddle," "hot dog roll," "mighty tight," "arriving in low," and "put some sugar in my bowl," can have.
Drag queens serve up dinner, outrageousness, and a show at Lucky Cheng's Restaurant. The show features comedy, karaoke, and — embrace yourself — interactive cabaret. The cross-dressed staff are anything but a drag; they enhance the fun as your bartenders, waitresses, and performers. After 19 years in downtown Manhattan, this dinner show transferred in 2012 to the Times Square area, where the shenanigans continue today.
A Mexican Affair celebrates the relationship between Mexico and the United States, including the beautiful cultural influences flowing between both countries. The evening is one of delicious music, candid stories, and spicy romance, featuring popular jazz tunes written by Mexican and American composers. The fusion of rhythms and musical influences invites audiences to take an adventure filled with passion, heartbreak, and a little dirty mambo! A Mexican Affair features songs by Frederick Loewe and Alan J. Lerner, Jimmy Kennedy and Michael Carr, Ben Weisman and Sid Wayne, Agustín Lara, Maria Grever, Pablo Beltran, Consuelo Velazquez, and others.
This season, Obie Award winner Ethan Lipton (No Place to Go) returns with a new adventure in bittersweet and hilariously off-kilter storytelling. With music by Vito Dieterle, Eben Levy, and Ian Riggs performed by a quartet, The Outer Space follows a married couple as they leave the noise, pollution, and overpriced rents of Earth for the vast beauty and treacherous terrain of the final frontier. But can they survive the journey? Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman (Violet) directs this out-of-this-world musical about the sacrifices we make for sustainable living and love.
