Let Porchlight Music Theatre's Ain't Misbehavin' transport you back in time to the golden age of jazz, when hot spots like the Cotton Club played host to the music of 1930s Harlem, and where swing music, jazz and stride piano infused the entire country with renewed energy. This Tony Award-winning show is a song-filled celebration of the timeless music of Thomas "Fats" Waller, who penned more than 400 songs during his career -- many of which have entered the classic repertoire of jazz standards still popular today. An energetic ensemble of talented performers brings down the house with a musical parade of Fats Waller's most popular hits -- rowdy, raunchy, humorous songs that encapsulate the moods of an era and reflect Waller's view of life as a journey meant for pleasure and play.
