What Is the Story of After Midnight?
This jazzy 90-minute dance-centric concert musical doesn’t have a story, but the production numbers are loosely linked by the fictional setting, Harlem’s iconic Cotton Club.
What Is After Midnight Like?
Fabulous fun! The incomparable Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars Orchestra sits in big-band formation on the stage of Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre, providing a swinging backdrop for a cast of great singers and dancers. The 90-minute-long show features the best of Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway and more composers, with raise-the-roof tap and jazz dancing choreographed by director Warren Carlyle. Add elegant costumes by fashion designer Isabel Toledo, and you’ve got a sophisticated evening everyone will love.
Is After Midnight Good for Kids?
A few songs are sexually suggestive, but the lyrics are likely to go over younger viewers’ heads. If your school-age child enjoys performances with no story but plenty of singing and dancing, After Midnight is a good choice for the family.
