I TOO SING AMERICA: THE LIFE AND POETRY OF LANGSTON HUGHES
(Performing Arts)

Howard University's Department of Theatre Arts will continue its 2012 - 2013 Theatre and Dance season with the World Premier of Andrew Jackson Moore and Raymond Caldwell's, I Too Sing America: The Life and Poetry of Langston Hughes directed by Raymond O. Caldwell, Musical Direction, Bert Cross II, and Choreographer Sandra Holloway.

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.

I Too Sing America will be performed in the Ira Aldridge Theater, Wednesday - Saturday, February 27 - 28, March 1 - 2, 6 - 9, 2013 at 7:30pm; Saturday, March 2 and 9 at 2:30pm. Tickets range from $7 to $17 and discount rates are available for Groups of 10 or more.
