The Apollo Theater in New York City hosts various events throughout the year, including amateur nights.
The Apollo Theater Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that was established in 1991. It is dedicated to preserving and developing the legendary Apollo Theater by hosting a variety of world-class live performances and education programs. These programs honor the influence of African American artists and help emerging voices advance in the media.
The theater hopes to reach a worldwide audience. The historic landmark is a symbol of pride in the American artistic accomplishment. It is considered the stronghold of African American culture and achievement.
The Apollo Theater received both state and city landmark recognition in 1983. It opened in 1914 as the Hurtig and Seamon’s New Burlesque Theater. At this time, African Americans were not allowed to attend the shows or perform in them. When the campaign against burlesque started in NYC, the theater was one of many that shut down. It was reopened for a brief stint in 1978-1979. When the Apollo Theater Foundation was founded, the theater was able to start performing concerts and hosting education and community programs again.
