David Lally wrote this piece for the Harlem Renaissance Festival at The Metropolitan Playhouse (220 E 4th st, NYC) Jan 17-30th.
What lurks above 125th Street? Generations X, Y, and Z, take the A Train to Harlem and discover what happened during a time not too long ago and how its influences still resonate today. From the creator of “Little Edie & The Marble Faun” (“an unexpectedly touching examination of memory and loss” — Backstage) and “The Real Housewives of the 19th Century” (“VERY FUNNY–thanks to the clever script and great cast with impeccable comedy timing.” — HI!
