Broadway’s “After Midnight” gets set to welcome Multi-Platinum, Grammy Award Winning Superstars TONI BRAXTON & KENNY ‘BABYFACE’ EDMONDS for a limited engagement beginning March 18th thru March 30th at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street).
TheaterPizzazz was there to welcome the new guest stars at a special press preview.
The exciting hit show reintroduces the Cotton Club’s tradition of welcoming new stars. It celebrates Duke Ellington’s years at the Cotton Club using his original arrangements. Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, the sexy, smoky, glamorous new musical captures the original Jazz Age with heart-pounding, mind-blowing entertainment and a world class big band of 17 musicians, hand picked by Wynton Marsalis. The timeless tunes are set against a narrative of Langston Hughes poetry, augmented by cutting edge performances by 25 sensational vocalists and dancers. Among the current eclectic cast are Tony Award winner Adriane Lenox, Julius “iGlide” Chisolm, Birgil J. Gadson, Karine Plantadit, Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards and Jared Grimes.
