“As good as it gets”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

There will never be an orchestra assembled on Broadway as fantastic as you will see performing in After Midnight. The dancing will bring you back to a bygone era. The show is so much more than the small part played by a rotating cast of female singers like Fantasia, Vanessa Williams, and Toni Braxton. The famous names may draw you but it's the orchestra and dancers you will be talking about on the way out.

“Overflow of talent”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

An amazing array of talented dancers, singers, and musicians who really get the spirit and style of an era. With costumes by award winning Isabel Toledo and dancing by super star Desmond Richardson helping to bring this golden age to life you can add that wonder of wonders Patti La Belle and the off the charts Jazz at Lincoln Center orchestra...every one of them a star.

“Some of the best dancing I've ever seen”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

I can see why this won the Tony for choreography. The dancing was AMAZING!! Parrish LaBelle and Dule Hill were good, but the lesser known singers and dancers really steal this show. It is just a review of many songs from the era of The Cotton Club, so there is no story, but that doesn't mean it won't keep your attention, it will. It is about 90 minutes with no intermission.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

The show was great, with superb dancing and singing. There is no real plot to speak of, but it was an enjoyable and light way to spend an evening.
