The legendary Harlem theater comes alive in this celebrated graphic novel - now available in paperback Writer Ted Fox and artist James Otis Smith bring to life Harlem's legendary theater in this celebrated graphic novel adaptation of Fox's definitive, critically acclaimed history of the Apollo - now available in paperback. Since its inception as an African-American theater in 1934, the Apollo and the thousands of legendary entertainers who have performed there led the way in swing, bebop, rhythm and blues, jazz, gospel, soul, funk, and hip hop–along with the latest in dance and comedy. Today, the Apollo enjoys an almost mythical status. With its breathtaking art, Showtime at the Apollo illuminates the theater's significance in music history, African-American history, and urban culture.

Ted Fox is the author of Showtime at the Apollo: The Story of Harlem's World Famous Theater and In The Groove. He was also the longtime manager and producer of Grammy Award–winning artist Buckwheat Zydeco. Fox lives in Dutchess County, NY. James Otis Smith is a multitalented artist whose work spans illustration, comics, motion graphics, and video. Formerly a member of the Act-i-vate Comix collective, Smith lives in Brooklyn, New York.
