Theater Review - After Midnight (NY)

“After Midnight” is an extraordinary musical delight.  This revue harkening back to the Cotton Club Days of Harlem is conceived by Jack Viertel. The magnificent 16-piece orchestra accompanies unique choreography by Warren Carlyle, the gorgeous singing by Fantasia Barrino—I am especially proud of her, for I voted for her when she competed in “American Idol”—the spectacular dancing by a cast so gifted it hurts. Dule Hill amazes as the emcee, singing, dancing, and so comfortable on stage, he seems to live there! More details to come.  This is THE ticket of the year!  Artistic Direction by Wynton Marsalis; Music Direction by The Jazz at Lincoln Center. The classiest, most beautiful flowy costumes by Isobel Toledo dress these women and men with wit and humor. “I’ve Got the World on a String,” is so special in black and white with red balloons. That’s just the beginning.    More details to come.
