NEW YORK —

Grammy Award-winner Fantasia Barrino will star in the Broadway-bound "After Midnight," a musical revue celebrating Duke Ellington's years at the famous Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem.

Producers said Thursday that Barrino, last seen on Broadway in "The Color Purple," will be their first guest star in the show. Performances start Oct. 18, with an official opening night set for Nov. 3. Barrino ends her run Feb. 9.

Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle with musical direction by Wynton Marsalis, the show appeared off-Broadway last year at New York City Center under the name "Cotton Club Parade." Songs include "Stormy Weather" and "I've Got the World on a String."

Barrino, who has released four albums, was the winner of the third season of "American Idol."
