Fats Waller Musical Show

Directed by A. Curtis Farrow

Ain't Misbehavin' — the Tony award winning musical — is a journey through the Fats Waller Songbook and Harlem in its heyday. With snazzy period costumes, complete with bowlers, spats, ermine, and pearls, the dynamic five-member cast transforms the theater into a Harlem jazz hall. When Ain’t Misbehavin' opened on Broadway it won four Tony Awards, including Best Musical. "The opening night audience almost knocked the roof off with cheers" reported the Associated Press. Time Magazine called it a "stompin', struttin', high hattin' smash" and Clive Barnes predicted Ain’t Misbehavin' would be "A joyous celebration that is going to cross the world." That time is now, with this exciting new production.

Curtis Farrow, award-winning Producer and Director, said “Taking home the win for best revival is truly a blessing. We have traveled all over the world with this production, but there’s nothing like performing in Harlem where Fat’s Waller reigned.” Ain’t Misbehavin’ is an extraordinary musical which encompasses 30 show-stopping numbers taking you on a journey through the Fats Waller song book, and Harlem in its heyday. With snazzy period costumes, complete with bowlers, spats, ermine and pearls the dynamic five-member cast turned the theatre into a rollicking rent party.
