Showtime in Harlem: A New Musical Celebrating The Cotton Club Era

  • What the Cotton Club is: a hot New York night club that drew in celebrities during the Harlem Renaissance and Prohibition
  • Who The Barn's performers look to for their tunes: jazz royalty such as Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, and Lena Horne
  • How they'll supplement the music: with dancers showing off the rug-cutting styles of the '30s, '40s, and '50s; enough air for sound waves to propagate

The Barn Dinner Theatre

In its earliest days, putting on a show at The Barn Dinner Theatre was a labor of love. Cast members, who were assembled in New York and traveled among the country's Barn locations, lived above the theatre during their engagements and served in the dining room as waiters before rushing off to get into costume. Today, though they sometimes still stay in the onsite living quarters, the performers only have to concentrate on presenting an entertaining spectacle to audiences at what is billed as "America’s longest-running dinner theater."

That task is made a lot easier by a buffet that satisfies guests with fresh-greens salad, a selection of southern sides, and choice slices of Angus roast beef and honey-glazed ham at the carving station. A sight sweetened by a decadent dessert such as housemade cobbler, the descent of the stage from the ceiling signals that the evening’s magic is on its way. Onlookers sit back for entertainment with no shortage of laughs, music, and emotion, ranging from popular productions such as Legally Blonde to country and bluegrass concerts to holiday-themed extravaganzas.
