ABOUT US: Currently celebrating its 75th anniversary, the Apollo Theater is one of Harlem’s, New 
York City’s, and America’s most iconic and enduring cultural institutions. The Apollo 
was one of the first theaters in New York, and the country, to fully integrate, welcoming 
traditionally African-American, Hispanic, and local immigrant populations in the audience, as 
well as headlining uniquely talented entertainers who found it difficult to gain entrance to 
other venues of similar size and resources. Since introducing the first Amateur Night contests 
in 1934, the Apollo Theater has played a major role in cultivating artists and in the emergence 
of innovative musical genres including jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, soul, and hip-
hop. Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Sammy Davis, Jr., James Brown, 
Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, and 
countless others began their road to stardom on the Apollo’s stage. Based on its cultural 
significance and architecture, the Apollo Theater received state and city landmark designation 
in 1983 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information, visit
