Ain't Misbehavin'


Music by  Thomas "Fats" Waller
Conceived by  Murray Horwitz and Richard Maltby, Jr.
Lyrics by  Various


Two Acts, Revue, Rated PG
Original Broadway Version (1978)

A sassy, sultry musical celebration of legendary jazz great, Fats Waller.

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.

The inimitable Thomas "Fats" Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that jumpin' new beat, Swing. Although not quite a biography, Ain't Misbehavin' evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs he 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.

Featuring five triple threat actors and a unit set, Ain't Misbehavin' provides the perfect opportunity to deliver a smash hit while minimizing resources. The intoxicating music of Fats Waller will delight and energize audiences as well as provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music.
