The Theatre Arts Program at North Carolina A&T State University presents Ain’t Misbehavin’ The Fats Waller Musical Show

Harlem. The Cotton Club. Honky tonk dives, rent parties and sweet, sweet swing. The songs of "Fats" Waller explode in this celebration of some of the best American music ever written. A Broadway blockbuster brimming with hot jazz and powerhouse performances, this Tony Award®-winning revue is the perfect tribute to one of the most prolific musicians of the 20th century. Filled with 30 beloved tunes like "'T Ain't Nobody's Bizness If I Do", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Mean To Me" and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", it's musical dynamite that will have you tappin' your toes, snappin' your fingers and singin' along.

The inimitable Thomas "Fats" Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that jumpin' new beat, swing music. Although not quite a biography, Ain't Misbehavin' evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs that he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

The intoxicating music of Fats Waller will delight and energize audiences as well as provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music. Ain't Misbehavin' The Fats Waller Musical Show is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time and winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical.
