Wit’s End Returns in January, but The Jazz Age Returns to Broadway Now!

Wit’s End™ is proud to help promote the return of live Jazz Age music on Broadway!

JulieForPromo

Grammy® Award winner Fantasia (The Color Purple) makes her highly anticipated return to the stage alongside Emmy® Award nominee Dulé Hill (“The West Wing”) in AFTER MIDNIGHT, the Broadway production of Encores! critically acclaimed Cotton Club Parade. With 25 sensational singers and dancers and an exciting roster of Special Guest Star headliners, this heart-pounding new musical brings the sexy, smoky glamour of Harlem’s Golden Age to a whole new generation.

At the heart of AFTER MIDNIGHT is The Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars, an orchestra of 17 world-class musicians hand-picked by nine-time Grammy Award winner Wynton Marsalis. The timeless songs of Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen, Cab Calloway and their contemporaries––woven together by the prose of Langston Hughes––come to life in an evening of cutting-edge song and dance. This thrilling experience puts you at the center of one of Harlem’s legendary nightclubs, in a hotbed of Jazz––its intoxicating rhythms, its innovative style, its unpredictable danger and fun.

Award-winning fashion designer Isabel Toledo reinvents the distinctive looks of the era with dazzling, one-of-a-kind costumes. And, as directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, AFTER MIDNIGHT blurs the line between past and present to prove that Jazz is more than music… it’s a state of mind.
