Ain't Misbehavin' goes back in time to 1930s Harlem, the Golden Age of jazz palaces like the Cotton Club, the Savoy Ballroom and the honky tonk dives on Lenox Avenue, where pulsing swing music played all hours of the day. This funny, rowdy, yet startling beautiful musical brings to life the world of jazz great Fats Waller through songs like "Ain’t Misbehavin’," "Honeysuckle Rose," "The Joint is Jumpin’," "I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," and many other hits.
