Leslie Uggams and a veritable Who's Who of legendary performers who have graced the stage at the Apollo Theater will appear in the new HBO Documentary, The Apollo, when the film opens the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday, April 24. Having its world premiere at the world renowned Harlem landmark, the film will then air on HBO later in the year.
The feature-length documentary weaves together archival footage, music, comedy, dance performances, and behind-the-scenes moments with the team that makes the theater run. The Apollo is directed by Oscar and Emmy winner Roger Ross Williams.
