About this Item

21 ¾¿ tall x 13 7/8¿ wide. Theater poster on cardboard. Ain¿t Misbehavin¿ featured the life and work of Fats Waller the Black musical genius of the Harlem Renaissance and exhibited the spirit and culture of that period. This is the original poster from the opening night at the Longacre Theater featuring Nell Carter, Andre DeShields, Armelia McQueen Ken Page and Charlaine Woodard and directed by Richard Maltby. The musical opened on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre on May 9, 1978, and closed on February 21, 1982 after 1604 performances and fourteen previews. Luther Henderson, who adapted Waller's music for the revue, appeared as the production's original pianist. Replacements later in the run included Debbie Allen, Yvette Freeman, Adriane Lenox, and Alan Weeks. An original cast recording was released by RCA Victor. (Google). The poster was done by acclaimed theater artist McMullan. It is also representative of the second renaissance cultural flowering of black theater and music in the 1970s. Very few of these original posters remain in circulation. Quite desirable and scarce. Overall VG+ (Very minor chipping at the lower left corner, upper edge slightly bumped).
