She is slated to be the first in a series of guest stars to appear in the musical revue, which begins Nov. 3, the newspaper said.
“After Midnight” will be directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, Wynton Marsalis is the musical director and Isabel Toledo is costume designer.
The show will run through Feb. 9.
