Welcome to the Harlem Renaissance!
All abroad for a musical cabaret of comedy, jazz, poetry & prose, and song. This show celebrates the amazing artistic achievements of African-Americans in the early 20th century, when art, music, poetry & literature exploded out of Harlem! Favorite songs include Satin Doll, Sophisticated Lady, Aint’ Misbehavin’ and Straighten Up and Fly Right. Prose selections include works by Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston and Paul Laurence Dunbar. UMSL Chancellor and pianist Tom George plays jazz music, Beverly Brennan ( by he way, she is the daughter of Jack Buck) belts out the songs and emcees, and three time Emmy award winning storyteller Bobby Norfolk brings to life the prose and poetry of Harlem. Door open at 6:30pm. Tickets available at door or online at brownpapertickets.com. Special discount prices for groups. Cash Bar.
