Immediately following the March 7 curtain call of After Midnight, audiences were treated to a special performance of "Hallelujah" by k.d. lang.
Following the curtain call, cast member Dule Hill took to the stage to welcome to the stage the Tony Award-winning chairman of The Actors Fund, Brian Stokes Mitchell. Mitchell explained that The Actors Fund had received a call from a supporter who would pledge a $10,000 donation if they could arrange for k.d. lang to perform her iconic rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" on stage. k.d. agreed, and took to the stage for a special encore, which was received with an immediate standing ovation.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
