Fodor's Expert Review Apollo Theater

Harlem Music
Apollo Theater, Harlem, New York City, New York, USA

Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, and James Brown are just a few of the world-class performers who have appeared on this equally famed stage, which first opened back in 1934. If the Apollo's Amateur Night doesn't get you up to 125th Street on a Wednesday, consider the theater's Thursday comedy night and the intimate late-night music series, Apollo Music Café, on select Friday and Saturday nights, featuring a variety of jazz, pop, hip-hop, and rock performers.
