Review from Muriel

Each act was beautifully delivered. The actors seemed to really relish their roles. The first act was superbly lyrical. I couldnt stop laughing through the second act. The third act was enchanting and dramatically satisfying. Cheers to the actor...continued

Description

“I git to the git with some pain n’ some spit n’ some spunk.”

The verdant, earthy language of Zora Neale Hurston (Their Eyes Were Watching God_) is animated through the music of the blues in these three tales of love, revenge, and redemption. Adapted by George C. Wolfe (_The Colored Museum) and featuring musical narration composed by blues artist Chic Street Man, Spunk breathes new life into these three remarkable short stories from the Harlem Renaissance.
