The critically acclaimed Broadway production “After Midnight” has inked a partnership with the Norwegian Cruise Line.

The show, which originally starred actor Dulé Hill and singer Fantasia Barrino, will debut on the cruise line’s newest and largest ship, the Norwegian Escape starting in November.

“After Midnight” opened on the Great White Way in November 2013.  The show was nominated for seven Tony Awards and won for Best Choreography.

A 90-minute production set in the 1930′s in Harlem, the finger-snapping, foot-tapping trip through the Renaissance era is a seductively joyous jazz journey.

In addition to Barrino, recording artists like Toni Braxton, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, k.d. lang, Vanessa Williams and Patti LaBelle starred in the production as well during its seven-month Broadway run.

The show’s original director/choreographer, Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle will oversee the recreation of the production for the Escape.  The show will continue to include costumes by Isabel Toledo and the set by John Lee.

The Norwegian Cruise Line has not cast their version of “After Midnight” yet.
