Welcome to Harlem’s famed Cotton Club in this stylish, brassy musical celebration of Duke Ellington’s greatest musical hits.

A full on-stage orchestra backs superb jazz vocalists, extraordinary tap dancers, dazzling deco costumes and unforgettable torch singers who bring classics like “Mood Indigo,” “Take the A Train” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)” to vivid life in this grand Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.

“Sophisticated Ladies” has never been produced before in Austin, so this summer show is not-to-miss.
