http://norwegiancreativestudios.com/auditioninfo/aftermidnight_2015.html

Norwegian Cruise Line is committed to raising the bar on what can be expected from at-sea entertainment.

It’s an exciting time to become a part of the Norwegian family.

Welcome back to that electrifying time when Harlem’s Cotton Club was the place to be. Winner of the 2014 Tony®, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Astaire Awards for Best Choreography, AFTER MIDNIGHT is the smash-hit musical that combines the big-band songs of Duke Ellington, a stageful of megawatt performers, a roof-raising onstage jazz band, and the best dancing from Broadway. Witness The Cotton Club come to life in a never-before-seen phenomenon at sea. Experience Broadway at its finest in the Escape Theater!
