Harlem, New York's legendary Apollo Theater will be the first theater in the United States to offer regular presentations which incorporate Hologram USA's hologram technology. The first show will feature jazz legend Billie Holiday, and will kick off later this year.
The new scheduled presentations will delve into the theater's archives and present performances from both contemporary and legendary artists.
“We are so pleased to employ this dramatic, cutting-edge technology as we continue to find new and innovative ways to celebrate our rich legacy for contemporary audiences,” Jonelle Procope, president and CEO of the Apollo Theater said, in a statement.
“To be able to bring back epic artists on the historic stage that gave them their debuts is mind-boggling, and is exactly why I invested so much into this technology," Alki David, CEO of Hologram USA said
