BREAKDOWN
George, a retired railroad porter and unofficial mayor of 132nd Street, keeps life neat and tidy. He finally meets his match when he befriends a down-on-her-luck stranger who is secretly the sweetheart he left behind in New Orleans 40 years before. A funny and touching look at the romantic travails of three couples learning about love in 1930s Harlem, this “musical comedy with heart” features a tuneful and jazzy period score by Harlem Renaissance songwriter J.C. Johnson, a colleague of artists such as Fats Waller, Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters and Billie Holiday
