Fodor's Review

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 Wednesdays, consider the theater's intimate late-night music series, Apollo Music Café, events on select Friday and Saturday nights, featuring a variety of jazz, pop, hip-hop, and rock performers.
