"Pearl Cleage's masterpiece...a play for the ages, and this production comes dangerously, impossibly close to perfection. A stunning achievement." —Wendell Brock for the AJC

"A first class show in every way." —Manning Harris for Atlanta INtown

From Renaissance to reality

Just like everywhere else, Harlem had a hard time during the Great Depression. But that didn't mean there weren't dreamers. Or world changers. Or creators. And, yes, some "entrepreneurs" (Prohibition? What Prohibition?). Because just like everywhere else, the Depression didn't wipe out hope or love, and it didn't destroy the engine that made the Harlem Renaissance happen in the first place.

And so we find Angel, Guy, and Delia in their impromptu hub of Harlem happenings, pursuing their own version of the Renaissance, and maybe a bit of romance. 

Like all Pearl Cleage characters, they bring heat, heart, humor, and heartache to the stage. And with a cast that features Crystal Fox (What I Learned in Paris), Tyrone Mitchell Henderson (Intimate Apparel), Keith Randolph Smith (God of Carnage), and Tinashe Kajese (True Color's Detroit '67), you'll feel every bit of it.
