Ain't Misbehavin' Added to Goodman's 2007-2008 Season logo
Fats Waller
A revival of the musical revue Ain't Misbehavin' has been added to the Goodman Theatre's 2007-2008 season. Chuck Smith, a resident director of the Goodman, will direct the production in Spring 2008. The show features the music of Fats Waller, including such classic tunes as "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Mean to Me."

As previously reported, one of the highlights of the season will be a Horton Foote festival that will include a full production of his classic play The Trip to Bountiful, directed by Harris Yulin.

The Goodman will also present Sarah Ruhl's Passion Play: A Cycle, directed by Mark Wing-Davey; Eduardo Machado's The Cook; the 30th anniversary production of its adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol; Conor McPherson's Broadway hit Shining City, once again directed by Tony Award winner Robert Falls; The Boys Are Coming Home, a new musical based on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing; and Ifa Bayeza's The Ballad of Emmet Till, based on the 1955 lynching of a 14-year-old boy, directed by Kate Whoriskey. The season will conclude in August 2008 with the Latino Theatre Festival, curated by artistic associate Henry Godinez.
