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.

The production consisted of 3 of Langston Hughes' short works. Each performer brought the piece to life in their own way. I sat there thinking how I would have done a verse or two differently. But all in all , I found them thoroughly enjoyable.

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.”
