Ain’t Misbehavin’

A Jazzy Celebration of the Great Fats Waller

Representing the 1920’s | Performed in the Circle Theatre

Assembled under the expert eye of director/lyricist, Richard Maltby, Jr., 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. Although not quite a biography, Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes the delightful humor and vibrancy of one of the Jazz genre’s inimitable icons as an energetic ensemble struts, strums and sings the songs that Thomas “Fats” Waller made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe. (PG-13)
