Why See Amateur Night At The Apollo?

Dance & BalletConcertsComedy & Stand-up

An NYC institution

Amateur Night At The Apollo has been a key feature in the New York scene since 1934 when it launched, and has been the stepping stone in the career of many world-class musicians and entertainers, including Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder.

The evening's format follows a similar one to that of popular TV talent shows like American Idol and Star Search, where a pre-selected group of hopefuls do their best on-stage to impress a panel of judges. However At Amateur Night At The Apollo, the audience is the judge and has the responsibility of deciding who stays and who goes - cheering loudly for those they like, and booing those they deem less adept off the stage.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
