About these ratings

One of the most famous music halls in the United States, "the Apollo" started as a burlesque theater in 1914. By the 1930s, it transformed into a concert hall that helped launch the career of several black musicians. A then-unknown Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Jackson (with the Jackson 5) and Stevie Wonder all performed on the Apollo stage during an Amateur Night competition. If you're in Harlem on a Wednesday you can still go to Amateur Night. You can reach Harlem and the Apollo on the A, B, C or D trains to 125th Street.

The theater also hosts other live performances throughout the year, with prices varying by performance. The box office is open on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. Visit the Apollo's website for an event calendar.
