Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s comes to life in the three-time Tony Award-winning Musical Revue, Ain’t Misbehavin’.
Join five performers on a journey through the timeless music of Thomas “Fats” Waller. You’ll be jumpin’ and jivin’ with memorable songs such as “Honeysuckle Rose”, “Ain’t Misbehavin", “Black and Blue”, “This Joint is Jumpin’ ” and “I’ve Got a Feeling I’m Falling.” One of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time, the sometimes sassy, sometimes sultry, has moments of devastating beauty that is simply unforgettable.
Winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical. Thomas “Fats” Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that jumpin’ new beat, swing music. Experience the heart and soul of Harlem where the onset of swing joined ranks with the rhythms of ragtime and the passions of jazz, creating an explosive musical movement.
This Musical Revue is like one big rent party or club show on stage. Enjoy the great stride music of Fats Waller with performers singing and dancing his musical tales of love, longing, and the zest for life.
