(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre is currently presenting Ain’t Misbehavin’. The production will have performances on weekends January 13th  through January 29th. Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr and Murray Horowitz with music by Thomas “Fats” Waller, Ain't Misbehavin' is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time and winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

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 is sure to delight and energize audiences as well as provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music.

The five-person cast of the Music Mountain Theatre production includes Tia Brown, Justin Derry, Siiyara Nelson, Jazzy Thomas, and Shan Williams II, with Direction by Tyree Taylor and Louis Palena and Choreography by Tyree Taylor. Sue Den Outer returns to MMT for musical direction and leads a live five-piece band on stage for the show’s hit songs, including Honeysuckle Rose," "Your Feet's Too Big," "Black and Blue," "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," "The Jitterbug Waltz," and the iconic title song. Ain’t Misbehavin’.
