Fantasia Returning to Broadway’s “After Midnight”


RCALast November, Fantasia Barrino received rave reviews for her role in the Broadway play After Midnight. Now, the singer has decided to return to the popular revue, which was created to pay homage to Duke Ellington‘s orchestra at the famous Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fanny was the first guest headliner of the show, which currently has Toni Braxton and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds appearing through March 30.  Vanessa Williams is scheduled to play April 1 through May 11.

Fans can expect to see Fantasia in action from May 13 through June 8. The singer has decided to donate a portion of ticket sales for her first performance to the Harlem School of the Arts.

“Life on tour is really great, but I miss my Broadway family at After Midnight,” said Fantasia. “I am very excited to have the opportunity to rejoin this incredible company while also supporting the Harlem School of the Arts, whose mission is close to my heart.”

The Wynton Marsalis-directed play could potentially receive nominations for this year’s Tony Awards, which will be presented on June 8 at Radio City Music Hall.
