We’re Taking You To The Theatre

Theatre with deep roots to our history.  That’s what we’re serving up this morning for Taking It to the Streets.  An award winning play based on three short stories by Howard University’s own Zora Neale Hurston is underway at the Signature Theatre. It’s called Spunk set to the music of the blues.  My guest is Ines Nassara – stars in Spunk, which is based on three short stories by Zora Neale Hurston

Spunk is based on three short stories by Zora Neale Hurston set to the music of the blues. The first “Sweat” is about a hard-working washerwoman and her abusive husband. The second is “Story in Harlem Slang” about the zoot suiters of Harlem in its heyday. The third is “The Gilded Six-Bits” is about a young husband and wife trying to navigate the complicated business of marriage, betrayal and forgiveness. Spunk runs thru June 23rdin Signature’s intimate ARK Theatre.  More information here:
