Tough times call for strong bonds. It’s the summer of 1930 and the promises of the Harlem Renaissance are giving way to the dashed dreams of the Great Depression. Playwright Pearl Cleage (Flyin’ West and Oprah Book Club selection What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day) tells a strikingly modern story about four friends whose lives and passions collide when an innocent newcomer from Alabama arrives in New York. Having captivating audiences around the world, Keen is proud to bring Blues for An Alabama Sky to New York for the first time since its premiere in Atlanta 25 years ago. Starring Prema Cruz, Alfie Fuller, John-Andrew Morrison, Khira Walker, and Sheldon Woodley.
