INFORMATION ABOUT "AFTER MIDNIGHT"
"What Is the Story of After Midnight?
This jazzy 90-minute dance-centric concert musical doesn’t have a story, but the production numbers are loosely linked by the fictional setting, Harlem’s iconic Cotton Club.
What Is After Midnight Like?
...Fabulous fun! The incomparable Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars Orchestra sits in big-band formation on the stage of Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre, providing a swinging backdrop for a cast of great singers and dancers. The 90-minute-long show features the best of Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway and more composers, with raise-the-roof tap and jazz dancing choreographed by director Warren Carlyle. Add elegant costumes by fashion designer Isabel Toledo, and you’ve got a sophisticated evening everyone will love.
Is After Midnight Good for Kids?
A few songs are sexually suggestive, but the lyrics are likely to go over younger viewers’ heads. If your school-age child enjoys performances with no story but plenty of singing and dancing, After Midnight is a good choice for the family."

A first look at the Original Broadway Cast of AFTER MIDNIGHT.
The lights dim... The music simmers... And the theater gets ready to blast into the stratosphere—as a company of 42 top-flight singers, dancers and musicians takes the stage to create what New York Magazine calls "an apotheosis of pure joy." It all happens at AFTER MIDNIGHT, the new Broadway phenomenon that catapults the greatest music of Duke Ellington and Harlem's Golden Age into the 21st century. The New York Times says, "It's hot, sweet and altogether glorious. You'll be in seventh heaven!"
Heart-stopping vocalists, eye-blurring tappers, rule-breaking dancers and chart-topping Special Guest Star singers—led by Grammy®-winner Fantasia, now through Feb. 9—join forces to create a singular theater experience. They're all joined onstage by Emmy®-winner Dulé Hill and The Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars, a 17-piece band hand-selected by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. As the New York Post says, "Don't, under any circumstances, miss it!"
