Amy Jo Halliday, who played Anna in our production of “The King And I” revisited this uplifting song for this video with a little help from some friends of Broadway Rose.
Although Ain’t Misbehavin’ was forced to cancel two weeks before opening, the cast and musical director reunited to perform of the show’s titular song.
