The Cotton Club, (2022)
Historically, the Cotton Club was a New York City nightclub located in Harlem operating from 1923 to 1940, most notably during America’s Prohibition Era and was owned by two notorious mobsters, Owney “the killer” Madden and Big Frenchy Demange. The Club featured many of the best black entertainers and jazz musicians of the era including Lena Horne, Duke Ellington, Adelaide Hall, Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Nat King Cole. During its heyday, the Cotton Club served as a hip meeting spot frequenting guests such as Jimmy Durante, George Gershwin, Judy Garland, and more. “The Cotton Club” is a variety show review that is actually a collage of some of the best remembered songs and performers that existed during the era of the Cotton Club. You will become a part of the show as a patron of the Cotton Club, but you will also experience “behind the scenes” moments when the “house” is closed.
