Fantasia, After Midnight's original Grammy Award-winning "Special Guest Star," will reprise her acclaimed performance in the hit Broadway musical from May 13-June 8. She will step back into the role at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre following Vanessa Williams' guest engagement.

After Midnight will donate $5 from each ticket sold for the May 13 performance to the Harlem School of the Arts.

"Life on tour is really great, but I miss my Broadway family at After Midnight," said Fantasia. "I am very excited to have the opportunity to rejoin this incredible company while also supporting the Harlem School of the Arts, whose mission is close to my heart."

Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, After Midnight began performances on October 18, 2013, with American Idol alum Fantasia in the Special Guest Star slot, now occupied by Grammy winners Toni Braxton and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds from March 18-30.

After Midnight celebrates jazz legend Duke Ellington and his years performing at the legendary Cotton Club. The cast of After Midnight currently features Dulé Hill, Tony winner Adriane Lenox, Julius "iGlide" Chisolm, Virgil J. Gadson, Tony nominee Karine Plantadit, Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, Jared Grimes, and a host of others.
