Travel to the Harlem Renaissance Era to the 21st century
As someone who loves Broadway musicals with a little flair, Harlem Song is one that you have to have in your collection if you enjoy history, jazz, soul, gospel, and rhythm and blues.
The production gives you personal narratives from residents of Harlem from the past incorporated into song and dance. Discussions of the assinations of Dr. King and Malcolm X, dance, civil rights issues, music and other issues that were pertient to the American community especially the black community are told through the voices of actual residents of Harlem.
I wish a video could be made available of this production (hint hint). I personally had the opportunity to see the production at the Apollo in 2002, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Now knowing I can hear the production at anytime brings joy to my life.
Another masterpiece by George C. Wolfe!
