The REV Theatre Company opens the final production of its 2022 season - Ain't Misbehavin'. The show runs September 21st - October 11th at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse in Auburn, NY. Check out all new photos here!

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!

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.
