Event Description

Tony® Award-winning Broadway veteran André De Shields appears on Crossroads Theatre Company virtual stage to present excerpts of his musical Haarlem Nocturne that will be interspersed with his reflections about creating the work, co-writing, directing and starring in the production.

The musical, performed at Crossroads in 1994, pays homage to the nightclubs of Harlem’s golden age. “Mr. De Shields is family and we are excited to have him back at Crossroads to spend some time with us reminiscing and revisiting the creativity and artistry that brought Haarlem Nocturne to life,” said Crossroads Co-Founder Ricardo Khan

“We’ll also talk about the roles he played in bringing success to some of Broadway’s biggest shows including The Wiz, The Full Monty, Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Hadestown, the show that brought him his first Tony in 2019,” he added.

In addition to the Tony, De Shields has won many accolades including the Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk Awards in 2019, the 2020 Audelco Lifetime Achievement Award and a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album for Hadestown.
