Conceived by Jack Viertel, with direction and choreography by Warren Carlyle and musical direction by Wynton Marsalis, After Midnight is a salute to Duke Ellington's Jazz Age reign at the celebrated Harlem nightspot, set against a narrative backdrop of Langston Hughes poetry.
Sidebar: Studio Q recently went to a Fantasia concert for the first time ever. She told us backstage about her upcoming Broadway debut and even invited Studio Q to New York to see the show and interview her. We are wishing her luck in her return to the Broadway stage. Check out the gift we gave to Fantasia below. You can also check out my shaky iphone video from the concert that night. That girl tore that stage up! If she is in your town GO SEE HER!
