Paper Mill Playhouse's upcoming production of After Midnight—the musical revue that transports audiences to the Cotton Club of the Harlem Renaissance—has found its complete cast and creative team, led by co-directors Dominique Kelley and Paper Mill Playhouse Associate Artistic Director Jen Bender. With choreography by Kelly, the musical will play the New Jersey theatre January 31-February 25, 2024, with opening night set for February 4.

The revue was first presented in 2011 by New York City Center Encores! as Cotton Club Parade, coming to Broadway in 2013 under its current title.
