Grammy Award-winning superstars Toni Braxton and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds will kick off a two week run in Broadway's After Midnight on Tuesday, March 18, wrapping on Sunday, March 30th.
To create awareness around the upcoming Broadway stint as "special guest stars", the two hit-makers attended a Meet the Press event on Thursday, March 13th at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York City.
During the event, Both Braxton and Babyface spoke candidly with attending media and posed for photos.
Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, the evocative new musical After Midnight takes the sexy, smoky glamour of the original Jazz Age and catapults it into a whole new era of heart-pounding, mind-blowing entertainment for modern Broadway audiences. Refracted through a contemporary lens, After Midnight celebrates Duke Ellington’s years at the Cotton Club using his original arrangements and performed by a world-class big band of 17 musicians hand-picked by living jazz legend, Wynton Marsalis. The timeless tunes set against a narrative of Langston Hughes poetry provide an authentic backdrop for an array of cutting-edge performances by 25 sensational vocalists and dancers, including special guest stars, whose interpretations shatter everything you think you know about music, nightlife and Broadway.
Braxton and Babyface are riding on a high with the success of their duet album, Love, Marriage & Divorce.
Tickets for Braxton and Babyface’s engagement are on sale now at Ticketmaster and in-person at the Brooks Atkinson box office.
