The musical, which reintroduces the Cotton Club's tradition of rotating guest stars, currently stars Vanessa Williams as its headlining vocalist. Grammy Award-winning recording artist Barrino began the tradition (Oct. 18, 2013-Feb. 9, 2014), followed by four-time Grammy Award-winning icon k.d. lang (Feb. 11-March 9) and Grammy Award-winners Toni Braxton and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds (March 17-30). Multi-platinum recording artist and actress Williams continues through May 11.
