American Theatre

Starring the award winning actress, singer, and dancer Jasmine Guy, star of the Bill Cosby spin-off 'A Different World' for which she won six consecutive NAACP Image Awards, and the acclaimed Avery Sharpe Trio, Raisin' Cane celebrates and honors the legendary voices of the Harlem Renaissance through text, song, music, movement, and imagery. Inspired by the classic 1923 Jean Toomer novel "Cane" and works by the musicians, composers, poets, and actors of the Harlem Renaissance. In 1918, as the first great World War concluded and thousands of African-American soldiers returned home victorious, this mountain of artistic expression was now ready to explode. You'll share in this exciting, sexy and thrilling evening at The American Theatre! Working intricately with the musicians, Guy luminously inteprets and performs the poetry of Langton Hughes. - New York Amsterdam News No Exchange / No Refunds
