Charlie Ludden is equally terrific in his highlight performances. Tracey Jordan Esaw has a beautiful voice; his “That Ain't Right” is right on. Andrea Coleman conveys enthusiasm and excitement.

Tyler Andrew Bowler is far too young (high school age) to be this smooth sounding. Regina Joy Banks' interpretations are soulful and heartwarming while the notes of Helen Richards lend body to the performances.

Kierro Markese Thompson is especially entertaining in his rendition of “The Viper's Drag.” Three dancing waitresses with soul round out the troupe: Bailey Anne Smith, Alisha Ragon and Lexy Neira.

This is a fun show and while the voices, especially those of Lewis and Jones, are wonderful — the best part comes from the audience and Fats Waller himself. By the fourth number, “Honeysuckle Rose,” everyone on stage or off can sing and dance with colorful harmony and mischievous pleasure. OK, apologies to my companion riding shotgun on the way home.
