THE SCREENING ROOM: Celebrating After Midnight Guest Star Vanessa Williams
01 Apr 2014
Multi-platinum recording artist and actress Vanessa Williams, who was Tony-nominated for her performance in Into the Woods, begins performances April 1 as the new special guest star vocalist in the Broadway musical revue After Midnight.
Having sold millions of albums worldwide, Williams was most recently seen on Broadway in the Tony-nominated play The Trip to Bountiful. Her other credits include Broadway's Kiss of the Spider Woman and Sondheim on Sondheim, as well as the St. Louis Woman for City Center's Encores! As a recording artist, she has garnered 11 Grammy nominations, and she is also known for her three-time Emmy-nominated performance as Wilhelmina Slater in "Ugly Betty."
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
