Ain't Misbehavin'

The jazz music of a legend is coming to the Porthouse stage.

July 6 - 22
Music by Thomas "Fats" Waller
Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Murray Horwitz

Winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical, “Ain’t Misbehavin’” is a sassy, sultry musical celebration of the legendary jazz great, Fats Waller. Although not quite a biography, “Ain’t Misbehavin’” evokes the humor and energy of an American original whose career ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages worldwide.

AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
