The show was born on Broadway under the title ‘Is not Misbehavin”and won literally every Tony Awards in New York. It was the first musical coming to Broadway in Paris 30 years ago at the Theatre de la Porte Saint-Martin. Its takeover in Paris with original artistic team, will inaugurate a world tour. . .
. .
‘Harlem Swing’ is set in a legendary jazz club in the heart of Harlem 20 years, the Roaring Twenties. Two men and three women flirt sing and dance until dawn, the crazy rhythms of the legendary Fats Waller, played by a piano surrounded by six musicians. The performers of the highest order are a set of first class.

. .
Fats Waller who was one of the greatest jazz pianists and composers of that time was also a prolific comic talent, and a man of great appetite, judging by his waistline imposing, hence the name ‘Fats’. His music is alternately frenetic and sophisticated, is breathtaking inventiveness and humor. The greatest jazzmen acknowledged his influence. And after the development of jazz in the ’40s and ’50s, the birth of Rock n ‘Roll will also be influenced by black music of jazz, rhythm and music n’Blue white country music.
