Town Hall Arts Center presents Ain’t Misbehavin
May 18 – June 17, 2018
The intoxicating music of Fats Waller will delight and energize audiences providing great insight to a vibrant time in American history and music! The last main stage show of the 2017-2018 Town Hall Arts Center season is Ain’t Misbehavin’. Music by Thomas “Fats” Waller, Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. & Murray Horwitz, Lyrics by Various. Ain’t Misbehavin’ is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time winning the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical. Not quite a biography, the musical evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original.
