Kohlenberg Lyceum Series Releases 2018-19 Schedule
Four events are scheduled for the 2018-19 Kohlenberg Lyceum Series.
The season begins Nov. 13 with the Tony award winning Broadway show, “Ain’t Misbehain’.” The musical encompasses 30 show-stopping numbers that take audiences on a journey not only through the Fats Waller song book, but through Harlem in its heyday. With Snazzy period costumes, complete with bowlers and spats and ermine and pearls, the dynamic five-member cast takes the audience where the high-steppers partied, from honky-tonk dives to the Cotton Club and from Tin Pan Alley to the Waldorf.
