I adored this show! I did not know at all what to expect but I found myself smiling the entire time (that is, when I wasn't giggling)!

The entire cast was so amazing- I kept privately deciding one of them was my favorite only to change my mind...continued

Good seat location. I was expecting more of a musical, rather than a musical revue. Since I enjoy the music of Fats Waller, I enjoyed the show. But, as others have said, it might be time for new, younger blood when it comes to some of the cast....continued

Description

At the height of the historic Harlem Renaissance, venues like The Cotton Club were jumpin’ to a new beat called “swing.” Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a rollicking, finger-snapping, toe-tapping, Tony Award®-winning musical revue — a tribute to the black entertainers of the early 1900’s that centers on the music of one of the most prolific musicians of the time, Thomas “Fats” Waller.

Recreated by original director Richard Maltby, Jr. (Tony Award®, Best Direction) for an exclusive Center Theatre Group engagement, Ain’t Misbehavin’ is vibrantly told with infectious energy and the cheeky humor for which Waller was known.

Ain’t Misbehavin’ features 30 famous, high-energy tunes including “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Black and Blue” and “The Joint is Jumpin’.”
