I Too Sing America: The Life and Poetry of Langston Hughes
(Performing Arts)

I Too Sing America: The Life and Poetry of Langston Hughes explores the work and biography of one of America's greatest poets. From the hotel kitchen where he emerged a "bus boy poet," to the glamour of the Harlem Renaissance, Hughes' struggle for artistic and intellectual integrity is told in his own words and through his poetry, re-imagined and reinvented for the stage. Also featuring jazz and Great American Songbook classics, the revue explores the major themes in Hughes' work: Race in a Jim Crow America, his political awakening amid the despair of the Great Depression and the marriage of blues and jazz rhythms that found voice in some of his greatest poems.
