AIN'T MISBEHAVIN'

ONE NIGHT ONLY! - September 15, 2018 @ 7:30pm

 “A boozy, after hours party, and we’re all invited.” — Huffington Post

Kick off Clocktower Players 2018-19 Season with AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' - one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time. Winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical, this is a musical tribute to the black musicians of the 1920s and 1930s who were part of the Harlem Renaissance, an era of growing creativity, cultural awareness, and ethnic pride. 

It was a time when Manhattan nightclubs like the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom were the playgrounds of high society and Lenox Avenue dives were filled with piano players banging out the new beat known as swing. Five performers present an evening of rowdy, raunchy, and humorous songs that encapsulate the various moods of the era and reflect the inimitable "Fats" Waller’s view of life as a journey meant for pleasure and play.
The intoxicating music will delight and energize audiences and provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music. Don’t miss it!

THE LARAMIE PROJECT

​Everyone Carries A Piece of the Truth

Twenty years ago, on October 7, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was brutally attacked and tied to a fence in a field outside of Laramie, Wyoming and left to die. On October 12, Matt succumbed to his wounds in a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. That November, ten New Yorkers set out for Laramie to explore a town and the crime that occurred there. After interviewing more than 200 residents, they created a deeply moving play about bigotry and tolerance, fear and courage, hate and hope – THE LARAMIE PROJECT.
