Grammy Award-winners Toni Braxton and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds have just begun their two-week engagement in Broadway's After Midnight. BroadwayWorld was there for their opening night and you can check out photos from their first curtain call below!

Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, the evocative new musical 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 will reintroduce this exciting tradition by presenting stars of today in limited engagement appearances throughout the musical's run. Grammy Award-winning recording artist Fantasia began the tradition (10/18/13 - 2/9/14), followed by four-time Grammy Award-winning iconk.d. lang (2/11/14 - 3/9/14), Grammy Award-winners Toni Braxton & Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds (3/18/14 - 3/30/14), and multi-platinum recording artist and actress Vanessa Williams (4/1/14 - 5/11/14).
