January 31, 2014 12:29:22 PM PST
The second annual Apollo Club Harlem is a 90 minute, fast-paced revue that showcases the Apollo's glorious musical legacy - transforming the legendary theater into a nightclub reminiscent of Harlem clubs of the 1930s and 1940s.Contemporary performers join host, director, and choreographer Maurice Hines and the Apollo Club Harlem Orchestra to recall the era when Harlem was home to New York's hottest clubs, and where the music of Billie, Ella, Dinah, Sarah, Duke and Dizzy became legends.

Featuring an illustrious group of performers Apollo Club Harlem will be hosted, directed and choreographed by actor, director, jazz singer and choreographer Maurice Hines and will include singer/actress from HBO's Boardwalk Empire Margot B, jazz vocalist Kevin Mahogany, dancers The Wondertwins, The Manzari Brothers and a supporting cast of female and male dancers and musicians under the direction of music director David Berger

In paying homage to the Apollo's early years, the setting will be similar to the Apollo's big band production revues and its nightclub style stage show. Audience members in the orchestra level of the theater will sit at club style setting with table service, complete with drinks service, dancing, and interaction with the performers. Sultry, sexy crooners, dazzling dancers, and swingin' big bands served-up a potent mix of high-class hijinks and entertainment.
