LANGSTON IN HARLEM Comes to Feinstein's/54 Below
Langston Hughes, one of America's most beloved poets, will be celebrated in song at Feinstein's/54 Below on Sunday, February 2nd, at 9:30 pm.
Langston in Harlem, the 2010 Audelco Award-winning musical, takes the words of Langston Hughes and marries them to the music of legendary composer Walter Marks, whose works include the hit song "I've Gotta Be Me" amongst many others.
Audiences will hear Langston Hughes' greatest poems like "The Sweet Flypaper of Life," "The Weary Blues," "Mother To Son," and so many more, sung by the legends of Broadway whose lives have been shaped by the observations of Mr. Hughes.
The concert will coincide with Hughes' 118th Birthday.
Schneider said, "Langston Hughes created a tapestry of poetic imagery that is still being celebrated today. His work has left an indelible impression on countless generations and I am so excited that artists from across Broadway are coming together to honor his intelligence, insight, and poetry at Feinstein's/54 Below."
Casting will be announced at a later date.
