That's Right! Vanessa Williams’ Time of Day Is After Midnight

Tony and Emmy nominated star Vanessa Williams is bringing down the house in the sizzling, toe-tapping musical After Midnight. Ms. Williams is looking picture perfect in those Isabel and Ruben Toledo gowns, and she sounds like a dream.
Now, this former Miss America has given us plenty of stage moments to get excited about: The Witch, The Spider Woman, the Sondheim songstress and, last season’s delight, the daughter-in-law from hell.
And honestly, who didn’t play out this jam?! This was on every break-up mixtape that ever blasted from a boombox.
TV audiences, of course, know Williams for her juicy roles on Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, 666 Park Avenue, Bye Bye Birdie and, a personal favorite, A Diva’s Christmas Carol.
All of this of course leads us to After Midnight, where Williams is sharing that magnificent voice with Broadway audiences once again, and it’s not to be missed. Check out the preview of her owning “Stormy Weather” in the video below, and then snag tickets to see her live at the Brooks Atkison Theatre through May 11.
