Welcome!

Hello Friends,
 
When Ain’t Misbehavin’ was originally produced for Broadway 44 years ago it was a celebration of Black excellence, joy, the importance of the Harlem Renaissance and its lasting impression on the music of the day. 44 years later that joy, excellence, and importance still rings true.
 
Ain’t Misbehavin’ is, at its core, a celebration of the Jazz music that shaped the American music scene. While melody and harmony are both important parts of any song, Jazz emphasized something that is integral to the development of music: improvisation. Every time they step out on stage, Jazz musicians interpret songs in a way that no one has ever heard before, and no one will hear again. Since the beginning of Jazz , musicians have been using improvisation to express how they feel. It’s what allows us to develop such deep connections to a song and a singer- it hits us in our soul.
 
Fats Waller’s music did just that. He allowed us to feel and understand more deeply the human experience. His music was not only catchy, but he tricked us into learning, understanding and thinking. He connected his music to our spirit to convey and invite us into his world. It is for that reason that we still celebrate and perform his music today. His influence is felt in R&B, Rap, Pop, Funk, Rock & Roll, and Country. Just  look at Jasmine Sullivan, Adele, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Jay and Bey- none of their musical aesthetics would exist in the same way without Fats.
 
Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a tribute to the music of a culture that connected people. It reminded them, and us, of hope, joy, power, loss and love. Music is intrinsic to the human experience, it allows our hearts to open, grow and expand. We are so lucky to bring together such an amazing cast and creative team as we celebrate the music that shaped America. So sit back, relax, open your heart and enjoy the stunning music of Fats Waller.
 
Best,
Randy O’Hara

Note From THe Director
As I’m researching and thinking about this wonderful jazz music revue, I think yes, Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a celebration of community, joy, and comedy. These five performers come together to laugh, drink, dance, to tell jokes and share stories. That’s the power of music and art, to bring people together. And we need that more than ever right now.
 
Also, I keep coming back to the phrase Black Excellence. When I take into account the historical context of the piece (on the heels of the great migration, prohibition, Jim Crow, segregation, etc.) I’m reminded of the resilience of the Black community and our ability to create new art forms and ways of self expression in the midst of hardship.
 
At every point in our history in America, African Americans have always persevered with grit and a deep determination. In spite of the injustices of the moment, Black people have always managed to turn the pain of our circumstances into creativity; inspiring music, dance, fashion, art and the like.
 
The jazz music that came out of the Harlem renaissance and the music scene that accompanied it (with both the Savoy and the Cotton Club as anchors) are tributes to that spirit of Black excellence, resiliency, and creativity. Ain’t Misbehavin, which features five star-quality performers singing and dancing to a live, fully stocked jazz band, is filled with that joy, comedy, pain, and heart.
 
I’m also excited about the makeup of this production team! It is not lost on me that for most of the history of the ‘American Theatre’, and especially on Broadway, white faces (mostly male) have helmed the telling of Black stories. That includes producers, casting directors, directors and other department heads. We are finally moving towards a more just and equitable system of producing theater and telling African American stories on the stage. It is an honor, as a Black gay man, to have the opportunity to direct and choreograph THIS beautiful musical, with this beautiful team at the Hillbarn Theatre.
 
Enjoy the show,
~ Kevin Smith Kirkwood

After having directed a production of ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ (the first Actor’s Equity Approved indoor production during the pandemic of 2020) and also a beautiful production of Kinky Boots at the Weathervane Theater, Mr. Kirkwood is beyond THRILLED to be Directing a production of THIS AMAZING SHOW at the Hillbarn Theater!

Jasmine is forever grateful to her parents for always encouraging and supporting her in every endeavor. She takes great pride in being the eldest sibling to Jade, Jael, and Ilijah and strives to be the best example possible, because she knows they are always watching. Jasmine firmly believes that her gift will continue to make room for her, and demands of herself a Standard of Excellence. Her heart for God’s people and passion for spreading His love through music fuels her, in hopes to hear Him say “Well done!”

FORWARDING HER LOVE OF THE ARTS

Hillbarn Theatre & Conservatory has received an extraordinary legacy gift from long-time friend and major supporter Adrienne Mitchell, who passed away on August 12, 2020, at the age of 93.
 
Adrienne and her late husband Bruce traveled the world extensively, visiting over 150 countries. Patrons of the arts, they enjoyed decades of opera, symphony and theater in San Francisco, as well as many trips to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
 
This major gift from the Mitchell Trust builds upon Adrienne’s previous major contribution to Hillbarn Theatre’s “Raise-the-Roof” Campaign.
 
We are all beneficiaries of the Mitchell’s generosity. Please take note of and enjoy much needed updates including fresh paint indoors and outside, a new sign out front, upgraded outdoor lighting, landscaping, new carpeting, lobby lighting, office computers, theater black drapes and lighting instruments. We are using this resource wisely and in ways that preserve the building, increase the safety of those who visit it and help create the magic onstage.
 
Thank you, Adrienne, for thinking of the joy that Hillbarn delivered to you and now to the hundreds of patrons who will benefit from your thoughtfulness and generosity.
 
Your gift, like Adrienne’s can make a meaningful impact on our mission. If you have included or are considering including a gift to Hillbarn Theatre, Inc. as part of your estate plan or in the form of another gift, please let us know. We would like to recognize you for your support.
