AFTER MIDNIGHT
Catch this star-studded Tony-Award winner before it leaves the theater.

Written by  Nina

After Midnight will unfortunately conclude early with a final performance Sunday, June 29 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 W 47th Street, New York City) after an eight-month run. The Tony Award-winning production currently stars the legendary Patti Labelle and Psych star Dulé Hill. Co-produced by jazz great Wynton Marsalis, who also heads the musical direction, After Midnight is a thrill-packed tribute to the age of jazz, big band, dance, Duke Ellington and the Cotton Club. Words from Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes also underline the performance.

Hill charms as host and even showcases his tap dancing talents (true fans of Hill know tap was his first calling). And Labelle’s powerhouse vocals stir the crowd with fan-favorite selections such as “Stormy Weather” and “Zaz Zu Zaz.”
Past special guest stars of the show have been Fantasia Barrino, Vanessa Williams, Tony Braxton and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. You can still buy tickets for the last few final performances at ticketmaster.com.
