This Tony-winning musical showcases the infectious energy and masterful stylings of legendary jazz musician, Thomas “Fats” Waller.

Five actors croon, jive, wail, and dance their way through the songs that made Waller a household name. Delight in the heyday of American big band jazz music as the cast celebrates unforgettable hits that include “The Joint is Jumpin’,” “Spreadin’ Rythym Around,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” and the show’s namesake “Ain’t Misbehavin’.”
