9. After Midnight (Broadway)
This bouncy revue of Duke Ellington-era hits has an unlikely star: Wynton Marsalis' Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars orchestra. But the rest of the talented cast of singers (including Fantasia, through Feb. 9) and dancers aren't exactly slouches. In fact, Warren Carlyle has produced the year's most buoyant choreography, in styles ranging from tap to soft-shoe to modern ballet.
