Duke Ellington's Cotton Club Parade to Return to New York City Center in November
Conceived by Jack Viertel and presented under the auspices of City Center's Encores! series, the show is a celebration of Ellington's years at the famed Harlem nightclub in the 1920s and '30s.
The production will feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars -- composed of 15 of the finest jazz soloists and ensemble players -- under the direction of Daryl Waters. Casting for this engagement will be announced at a later date.
The design team will include John Lee Beatty (scenic consultant), Toni-Leslie James (costume consultant), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting designer), and Scott Lehrer (sound designer).
