New York City Center and Jazz at Lincoln Center are pleased to announce a new producing partnership that will combine the organizations' specialties: musical theater and jazz.
Cotton Club Parade is a celebration of Duke Ellington's years at the famed Harlem nightclub in the 1920s and '30s, when the joint was jumping with revues featuring big band swing and blues, dancers, singers, and novelty acts. Packed with hits from some of the greatest jazz composers of the time—including Harold Arlen, Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields, and Ellington himself—this production re-imagines a Cotton Club floor show right here on the City Center stage.
