In May 2004, The MorganScott Ballet presented, “Take the A Train: A Tribute to Billy Strayhorn,” at the Duke Theater on 42nd Street. This was a musical theatre celebration about the gay composer, living in the shadow of Duke Ellington. This performance included singers, actors, dancers, and musicians. Fans hailed this evening length production as the company’s best to date, and Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times wrote, “as wistfully lush as Strayhorn’s music.”
