'After Midnight' to hit Broadway this fall

After Midnight, a musical revue celebrating Duke Ellington’s years at the famous Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem in the late ’20s and early ’30s, will begin new performances far from its original neighborhood — downtown at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway.

Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle with musical direction by Wynton Marsalis, the show appeared off-Broadway last year at New York City Center under the name Cotton Club Parade. Songs include “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got the World on a String.”

Casting and musicians will be announced later. One name swirling around the show is Grammy Award-winner Fantasia Barrino, who recently told the Today show that she was returning to Broadway in October, but didn’t name the show.

After Midnight will open its doors in October.
