Photo Coverage: Tommy Tune Celebrates AFTER MIDNIGHT's Tony Nominations

In the glow of its seven Tony® Award nominations, including one for Best Musical, Broadway legend Tommy Tune threw a party to celebrate the show's success. Check out photos from the big event below!

After Midnight takes the sexy, smoky glamour of the original Jazz Age and catapults it into a whole new era of heart-pounding, mind-blowing entertainment for modern Broadway audiences. Refracted through a contemporary lens, After Midnight celebrates Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club using his original arrangements and performed by a world-class big band of 17 musicians hand-picked by living jazz legend, Wynton Marsalis. The timeless tunes set against a narrative of Langston Hughes poetry provide an authentic backdrop for an array of cutting-edge performances by 25 sensational vocalists and dancers, including special guest stars, whose interpretations shatter everything you think you know about music, nightlife and Broadway.

In its heyday, the Cotton Club featured a cavalcade of guest stars each week, known then as "Celebrity Nights."After Midnight reintroduces this exciting tradition by presenting stars of today in limited engagement appearances throughout the musical's run. Currently starring multi-platinum recording artist and actress Vanessa Williams through May 11, 2014, Grammy Award-winning recording artist Fantasia began the tradition (10/18/13 - 2/9/14), followed by four-time Grammy Award-winning icon k.d. lang (2/11/14 - 3/9/14) and Grammy Award-winners Toni Braxton & Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds (3/17/14 - 3/30/14). Fantasia will be returning to After Midnight for a four-week return engagement (5/13/14 - 6/8/14) leading up to the Tony Awards on June 9, 2014.
