Monday 18, Friday 22, Saturday 23 February, 2012 at 8:30 PM. Pre-show at 7:30 p.m.


Harlem was home to New York’s hottest clubs in the 30’s and 40’s, where the music of Billie, Ella, Dinah, Sarah, Duke and Dizzy became legend. Sultry, sexy crooners, dazzling dancers, and swingin’ big bands served-up a potent mix of high-class hijinks and entertainment.  Now the glamour, electricity and elegance of the Harlem Club environment is back in an all-new, nightclub-style show, staged as only the world-famous Apollo Theater could do it. 

The entire orchestra section of the world famous Apollo Theater will be transformed into nightclub seating with table service and pre-show entertainment from 7:30pm and dancing onstage afterwards.
