As the only professional theater company on the North Side, we make live theater easily accessible to the community.
Important news about:
Ain’t Misbehavin’ the Fats Waller Musical
Stage North has announced that due to a last-minute loss of cast members from vocal illness and scheduling conflicts, we will be postponing our production of Ain’t Misbehavin’ until May of next year. While this is disappointing, the company feels that rather than putting up a hastily assembled production, the show would be best served by a postponement until all involved are healthy and available.
The show, under the direction of Kelli Foster Warder and musical direction of Sanford Moore, and the original cast, will now open at the Capri on May 12, 2023.
Directed and choreographed by Kelli Foster Warder, fresh off her highly-acclaimed production of Jelly’s Last Jam at Theatre Latte Da, and with musical direction by local music legend Sanford Moore, Ain’t Misbehavin’ brings the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s to life. Join five performers on a journey through the timeless music of Thomas “Fats” Waller. You’ll be jumpin’ and jivin’ with memorable songs such as “Honeysuckle Rose”, “Ain’t Misbehavin’”, “Black and Blue”, “This Joint is Jumpin’ ” and “I’ve Got a Feeling I’m Falling.” One of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time, this sometimes sassy, sometimes sultry, always hugely entertaining show features the incredible vocal talents of Len Jones, Alexcia Thompson, Heather McElrath, Dwight Leslie and Jamela Pettiford.
Our production of Ain’t Misbehavin’ the Fats Waller Musical has been postponed.
Built in 1927, the Capri is the last of 13 theaters that once graced the north side of Minneapolis. Beautifully reimagined and brought back to a new life in 2021. Stage North is thrilled to call it home!
The Capri is the perfect space to return to local live theater in the Twin Cities. We cant wait to share it with you!
