Toni Braxton and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds are set to hit the Broadway stage in the Warren Carlyle-directed and choreographed show After Midnight, highlighting Duke Ellington‘s years at the legendary Cotton Club in Harlem.
On March 18, the Grammy-winning artists will begin their two-week stint as guest stars, following the previously announced Fantasia Barrino and k.d. lang. Additional performers are expected to be announced.
The show– set to the narrative of Langston Hughes‘ poetry– will feature 17 musicians and 25 vocalists and dancers, as well as renditions of “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got the World on a String.” DulÃ© Hill will serve as emcee.
Braxton and Edmonds are prepping the release of their upcoming duets album Love, Marriage & Divorce which hits shelves Dec. 3.
After Midnight will begin previews Oct. 18 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre and will officially open Nov. 13.
