The Apollo Theater is celebrating its 80th anniversary this week.

Wayne Brady will host the annual spring gala Tuesday at 7 p.m.

The event will double as a birthday celebration.

Gladys Knight and the Isley Brothers are among the stars set to perform.

The anniversary marks the 1934 opening of the iconic venue, which replaced a whites-only Burlesque theater that occupied the space from 1914 until 1933.

Tickets are available at the Apollo Theater box office or online at ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
