(AP) New York City's storied Apollo Theater will be temporarily transformed into a glamorous, old-school nightclub in February. It's part of a production directed, choreographed and hosted by Maurice Hines.


Grammy-winning jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater will be among the performers.


The orchestra level will become a club-style setting, offering table service, drinks, dancing and interaction with the performers.


To accomplish the task, the historic theater's main-floor seats will be removed, and the stage will be extended.


Hines' history with the Apollo began when he was 7 and his brother, Gregory, was 5 years old.


Apollo Club Harlem will have three performances. Tickets go on sale Monday.
