'After Midnight'

“Midnight. Harlem. Once it was true, in 1932 Harlem’s heartbeat was a drumbeat. After Midnight, early blue evening. Lights ain’t come on yet…They’re coming on now.” BAM! The Brooks Atkinson Theatre’s stage breaks out into old Harlem jazz.

After Midnight features the elegant Harlem 1930s nightclub scene in full swing. The very talented ensemble gives every ounce of themselves to the audience in this high energy production. Most notable member of the ensemble Fantasia Barrino delivers four outstanding performances that should not be missed.

Candy Spelling, producer of After Midnight, told PressRoomVIP that she is “a jazz lover. This is the ultimate jazz. It’s the best of the singing, it’s the best of the dancing, it’s the best of all of it.”

Dule Hill has much admiration for his co-stars. Hill said, “The level of talent on that stage every night is really awe-inspiring for me. It challenges me to dig deeper and to reach further. Jimmy Slyde would always say ‘if you’re not falling, you’re not reaching.’ And being around these group of artists inspires me to reach everyday.”
