Toni Braxton, Babyface to Star in Broadway Musical ‘After Midnight’
Braxton and Babyface have agreed to perform in the Broadway musical, ‘After Midnight.’
As we previously reported, the production, based on the life and music of Duke Ellington, stars Fantasia, who plays the late jazz chanteuse Billie Holiday. Pulitzer Prize-winning musician Wynton Marsalis is the co-creator of the play and wrote the music.
According to Playbill, Braxton and Babyface will join the production beginning March 18-30, 2014.
‘After Midnight’ will preview Oct. 18 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York before its official debut on Nov. 3. Tickets are on sale now.
In the meantime, Braxton and Babyface’s duets album is scheduled to hit stores Dec. 3 on Motown Records. The duo’s first single, ‘Hurt You,’ is a Top 10 hit on the Billboard chart.
Congrats to Toni Braxton and Babyface. We wish the singers a successful run on Broadway.
