After Midnight Tickets On Broadway

Now to be honest I know nothing about this show. Thankfully they have a website that tells me all about it. After Midnight, featuring the music of Duke Ellington will begin performances at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on October 18 with opening night scheduled for November 3. It was also recently announced that American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino is in talks to star in the show. Having received great word of mouth from her stint in The Color Purple I am sure that if cast she will be a gig draw. We shall see. Now on to the synopsis of the show.

Jazz is a state of mind. It's a structure for innovation, forward momentum and freedom. The evocative new musical After Midnight will take the sexy, smoky glamour of the original Jazz Age and catapult it into a whole new era of heart-pounding, mind-blowing entertainment for modern Broadway audiences. Refracted through a contemporary lens, After Midnight will celebrate Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club using his original arrangements and performed by a world-class big band of 17 musicians hand-picked by living jazz legend, Wynton Marsalis.

The timeless tunes set against a narrative of Langston Hughes poetry will provide an authentic backdrop for an array of cutting-edge performances by 25 sensational vocalists and dancers, including special guest stars, whose interpretations will shatter everything you think you know about music, nightlife and Broadway. Welcome to the new Jazz Age.

Well I'm sold. Tickets for the show are expected to go on sale in the coming weeks so check back when they do. Get your tickets to see After Midnight at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway. Sounds like a winner to me.
