If you're a little surprised to discover that alt-country star k.d. lang is coming to Broadway, so is Lang. "It is outside my comfort zone. It is something that I never thought I'd be doing," the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter says. Lang will take over from Fantasia Barrino as the second star vocalist in "After Midnight," a musical celebrating Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem. Lang, blessed with androgynous looks and a sensuous voice, starts performances Tuesday and will end her run March 9.
