After another stellar performance as the "Guest Star" in Broadway's After Midnight, the crowd at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on Friday night were in for a treat. Dulé Hill introduced Tony Award-winning chairman of The Actors Fund, Brian Stokes Mitchell, who explained that the Actor's Fund received a call from a supporter pledging a $10,000 donation if they could arrange for k.d. lang to perform her iconic rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" on the Broadway stage. k.d. agreed and took the stage for a special encore, performing the song to an immediate standing ovation.
The lights dim…The music simmers…And the theater gets ready to blast into the stratosphere— as a company of 42 heart-stopping vocalists, eye-blurring tappers, rule-breaking dancers and chart-topping Special Guest Star singers - led by Grammy®-winner k.d. lang, now thru March 9 - join forces with The Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars, a 17-piece band hand-selected by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. It all happens at AFTER MIDNIGHT, the new Broadway phenomenon that catapults the greatest music of Duke Ellington and Harlem’s Golden Age into the 21st century. As the New York Post says, “Don’t, under any circumstances, miss it!”
