Excellent performances by all 3 actors. Each imbued his/her Langston Hughes short story with personal style and an abundance of talent.

The popular public radio show recorded live in Symphony Space on upper west side- by 1-2-3 subway stop. Great readers/performers who presented the 3 short stories. Though this was a one-time event, they do these readings periodically. Delightful.

Hadn't been to Symphony Space in many years and what a great program to return on. One of the better readings we've been to....but then, how can you go wrong with great stories from Langston Hughes?

Description

Du Bose Heyward wrote in the New York Herald Tribune, “Langston Hughes, although only twenty-four years old, is already conspicuous in the group of Negro intellectuals who are dignifying Harlem with a genuine art life… Always intensely subjective, passionate, keenly sensitive to beauty and possessed of an unfaltering musical sense, Langston Hughes has given us a ‘first book’ that marks the opening of a career well worth watching.”
