Amateur Night At The Apollo Poster

Amateur Night At The Apollo

Until December 9, 2017

Amateur Night At The Apollo has been a key feature in the local 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 audience has the responsibility of cheering loudly for those they like and booing those they deem less adept off the stage.

Having performed for more than two million people in the United States, Europe, and South America, they have brought the same recognition to their dancer as Alvin Ailey has done for black dancers.

Billed as a live musical documentary, visionary musical director Chen Lo's Soundtrack '63 will immerse their audience in the music of the movement, performed by an 18 piece orchestra and vocal ensemble.
