This exhilarating song and dance extravaganza is set to the swinging sounds of Duke Ellington, Jimmy McHugh, Dorothy Fields, Harold Arlen and more and framed by the poems of Langston Hughes.
Starring Nova Y. Payton with direction and choreography by Jared Grimes (Broadway’s After Midnight, Signature’s Jelly’s Last Jam, Ain’t Misbehavin’), music direction by Mark G. Meadows (Ain’t Misbehavin’, Motown cabarets), and featuring 28 of the big band era’s most memorable songs including “Stormy Weather,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” this non-stop revue showcases the gorgeous glamour and sophisticated syncopation of the Harlem heartbeat after midnight.
“Tap-crazy? You’ll be in seventh heaven at After Midnight… the music gleams, shimmers, dances and sings with an eloquence that enthralls”– The New York Times
