Cast & Creative Team Announced for AIN'T MISBEHAVIN'! at The REV Theatre Company

The REV Theatre Company has announced the cast and creative team for the final production of its 2022 Season - Ain't Misbehavin'.

Ain't Misbehavin' is a sizzling celebration of Fats Waller's music - songs that he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages around the world. This delightful revue evokes the humor and infectious energy of this American original to provide an evening of humor, romance and thrilling song and dance. Featuring Fats Waller's biggest hits including "Keepin' Out of Mischief," "This Joint is Jumpin'," "Mean to Me" and of course the famous title song, "Ain't Misbehavin'," The REV's 2022 season finale is sure to have audiences dancing in their seats!

The REV's Producing Artistic Director, Brett Smock, says, "As we begrudgingly let go of summer, the kids go back to school and life adopts a more rigid routine, Ain't Misbehavin' reminds us to laugh more, sing and dance freely, and celebrate the precious moments in life. We could all use this reminder right now and The REV is thrilled to provide this funny, sassy and joyful song and dance spectacle for our audiences."

Ain't Misbehavin' is directed by Tyrone L. Robinson, who has appeared on Broadway in Disney's The Lion King, The Book of Mormon, and Frozen. He is joined by choreographer, Chloe Davis (Broadway Associate: Paradise Square, Drama Desk Award Winner; for colored girls... MUNY: My Tribute to Black Broadway and Black Choreographers). Both Robinson and Davis are making their REV debuts. Kenney M. Green (European Tour: Ain't Misbehavin'), Artistic Director of The Depot Theatre, returns to The REV as Musical Director after appearing on the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse stage in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in 2013. Raven McRae (As Broadway Performer: Motown The Musical, Cirque du Soleil's Paramour) serves as Assistant Choreographer. Production Stage Manager is Kent James Collins.
