Music by Fats Waller
Book by Murray Horwitz and Richard Maltby, Jr.

The inimitable Thomas Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that new beat, swing music. 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 that 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.
