Back by popular demand, City College Center for the Arts presents On Kentucky Avenue, a musical on Atlantic City’s historic Club Harlem.

On Kentucky Avenue: A Celebration of Atlantic City’s Famed Club Harlem will transport the audience back in time, with a glimpse inside the celebrated Club that was the center of nightlife in Atlantic City’s segregated Northside, beginning in the 1930s.

“We are very excited to bring On Kentucky Avenue back for New York audiences,” said City College Center for the Arts Managing Director Gregory Shanck. “It’s a work our patrons really connected with when it premiered here. There is also a true synergy of purpose between what Club Harlem was all about and what we aim to do here at Aaron Davis Hall—provide audiences with the opportunity to experience the work of great artists.”

On Kentucky Avenue: A Celebration of Atlantic City’s Famed Club Harlem was created by Jeree Wade, written by Adam Wade and Ty Stephens, and directed by Lee Summers. The three-week return engagement will run from Thursday, July 12 to Saturday, July 28 at City College Center for the Arts, Aaron Davis Hall, West 135th Street and Convent Avenue.

“This is the Party you don’t want to miss!”
