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

Delight in the heyday of American big band jazz music as the cast celebrates unforgettable hits that include “The Joint is Jumpin’,” “Spreadin’ Rhythm Around,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” and the show’s namesake “Ain’t Misbehavin’.”
