In her Olney Theatre debut in the musical Ainâ€™t Misbehavin, actress Jesaira Glover takes on the role that catapulted actress and singer Nell Carter to fame.
â€œI am not looking to imitate Nell Carter,â€ Glover, 35, said. â€œThe director, Devron Young, is encouraging us to bring our own interpretation.â€
The Tony-Award-winning musical about the life of composer, musician and comic Thomas â€œFatsâ€ Waller opens at the Olney Theatre July 8 through Aug. 2 and will feature 30 of Wallerâ€™s songs.
