Attn: “Ain’t Misbehavin’’ AEA LORT SUBMISSION

STORY: This Tony Award-winning revue pays tribute to one of America’s true originals, the charismatic songwriter, singer, pianist and superb entertainer from the 1920s and 30s, Thomas “Fats” Waller. Based on his life and music, AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ is conceived and directed by Richard Maltby, Jr., who won the 1978 Tony Award for his work on the original production. The fun-filled musical brings the audience into the world which Fats Waller helped make famous – the world of places such as The Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom, of honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, of rent parties, of stride piano players, and most importantly, that new beat – swing.


AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ includes 30 songs, all presented with the zest for life and cheeky humor for which Waller was known: “The Joint is Jumpin’,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Mean to Me,” “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “Two Sleepy People,” “T’ain’t Nobody’s Bizness If I Do,” “Your Feet’s Too Big,” “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter,” “Black and Blue,” “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and more.
