Harlem's Night: A Cabaret Story opens Thursday December 9th

Harlem's Night: A Cabaret Story opens Thursday December 9th

Atlanta, GA--  The new show that has sold out in LA and NY, is coming to Atlanta on December 9th and 10th.  The show features The Brown Betties and Rodney Perry from The Mo'Nique Show, and will be a sexy yet sophisticated presentation.

Harlem is the story of one woman pining after one man—Joe, and how she uses her three alter-egos, played by the Brown Betties, to get him.

Set in 1940s Harlem, these women seductively dance and croon their hearts out, revealing the sordid passions they have for the sexy but unattainable Joe.
