Fantasia will be the first of many guest stars to act in the Broadway production.
Soulful crooner Fantasia is gearing up to hit the Broadway stage in the jazz-inspired musical, After Midnight.
Directed by Warren Carlyle, the musical is set to showcase the work of Duke Ellington’s years at Harlem’s Cotton Club.
Fantasia will be the first of many guest headliners starring in the production and is scheduled to play performances through February 9, 2014.
The last time fans saw the American Idol alum on Broadway was in 2007’s The Color Purple, in her role as Celie.
A preview run of After Midnight will kick off on October 18 and the show will officially open on November 3rd.
