The actress will join the cast of the Cotton Club Parade at New York City Center for a limited seven-night run in November (12).

Announcing the news in a Twitter.com post on Monday (30Jul12), Riley writes, “I am so excited to be a part of Cotton Club Parade! I have been wanting to burst out and tell everyone lol (laugh out loud) I’m glad it’s finally out!”

The Broadway-style revue focuses on Ellington’s years at the famous Cotton Club venue in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s and will feature musical direction from Wynton Marsalis.
