A sassy, sultry musical celebration of legendary jazz great, Fats Waller.
Ain’t Misbehavin’ is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time and winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical. The inimitable Thomas “Fats” Waller rose to international fame as part of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and ’30s with his jumpin’ new beat – known as swing music. Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original.
Join our cast for a show of rowdy, raunchy, and humorous songs that Waller made famous in a career that ranged from high society Manhattan nightclubs and low-lit dives, to Hollywood and concert stages around the world.
Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)
