Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime evening with Tony® winner André De Shields as he celebrates the 40th Anniversary of a very special Broadway musical known as Haarlem Nocturne, in honor of Black History Month.
In 1984, André De Shields’ Haarlem Nocturne opened on Broadway at the Latin Quarter. About the show, The New York Amsterdam News reported, “It’s a sensational musical… And it’s very contemporary, although it does pay homage to the best of Black music’s past, present, and with its original songs, future.”
Now, 78-year-old showstopper De Shields is back to celebrate. Expect roof-raising recreations of the beloved music from the show, never-before-heard stories, and even a reunion or two, as well as the wit, elegance and charm that the master entertainer has become known for.
In an illustrious career, André De Shields has distinguished himself as an actor, director, and educator. His notable theatrical appearances include the original Broadway productions of The Full Monty (Tony nomination), Play On! (Tony nomination), Ain’t Misbehavin’ (Emmy Award) and the title role in The Wiz. De Shields was the triple-crown winner of the 2019 award season, garnering Tony, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk Awards for his universally praised role as Hermes in Hadestown.
Accompaniment by Original Musical Director & Cast Member Marc Shaiman.
