Glee actress, Amber Riley is taking her voice to The Great White Way!
Amber has been booked to perform in Cotton Club Parade a musical centered around the rise of Duke Ellington and Harlem's famed Cotton Club in the '20s and '30s. She'll perform from Nov. 14-18 in Manhattan's City Center, alongside Tony-nominee Brandon Victor Dixon, Jared Grimes and Tony-winner Adriane Lenox.
While the actress has performed on stage before (“Mystery on the Docks” with the Los Angeles Opera) this will be her Big Apple debut.
Amber made headlines this May when she mysteriously collapsed while being interviewed during a Glee event on the red carpet. The good-natured performer later tweeted that she's still a newbie when it comes to all the bright lights and chaos of big events.
"Hey guys, I'm okay I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes!" she Tweeted afterward. "You'd think I'd be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes."
