Years ago, co-author Murray Horwitz partnered with lyricist and director Richard Maltby Jr. to creatively blend the elements of both comedy and jazz into a hit Broadway show. Since its original production in 1978, "Ain't Misbehavin'" has become an American legend and is still considered as one of Broadway's best. Even with today's audiences, "Ain't Misbehavin'" still holds its reputation as "an energetic, musically rich show."
