Blues for an Alabama Sky (1997)
A highlight of the Olympic Arts Festival in Atlanta last summer, BLUES FOR AN ALABAMA SKY is the latest play from the author of FLYING’ WEST. Against the backdrop of 1930s Harlem, five friends struggle to hold onto the fading glory of the Harlem Renaissance by seeking the good times with as much humor and passion as they can muster. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, BLUES is a bittersweet story about friendship, family, and the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit.
