The successful musical After Midnight has been running successfully on Broadway for the past several months and now joining the cast is Grammy Award winning artists Toni Braxton and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. As fans, may know Toni Braxton has performed on Broadway in the past, but this will mark the very first performance by Babyface. The show has already been a favorite for New York audiences and with these two superstars joining the cast for this limited engagement, there is not doubt it will continue to be successful.

Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, the evocative new musical After Midnight takes the sexy, smoky glamour of the original Jazz Age and catapults it into a whole new era of heart-pounding, mind-blowing entertainment for modern Broadway audiences. Refracted through a contemporary lens, After Midnight celebrates Duke Ellington’s years at the Cotton Club using his original arrangements and performed by a world-class big band of 17 musicians hand-picked by living jazz legend, Wynton Marsalis. The timeless tunes set against a narrative of Langston Hughes poetry provide an authentic backdrop for an array of cutting-edge performances by 25 sensational vocalists and dancers, including special guest stars, whose interpretations shatter everything you think you know about music, nightlife and Broadway.

In its heyday, the Cotton Club featured a cavalcade of guest stars each week, known then as “Celebrity Nights.” After Midnight will reintroduce this exciting tradition by presenting stars of today in limited engagement appearances throughout the musical’s run.

Grammy Award-winners Toni Braxton & Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds can be seen in the show from 3/18/14 to 3/30/14 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York City. With both of their many successes along with the release of their new album entitled Love, Marriage & Divorce, the performance should be very exciting.
