Enjoy the songs that kickstarted the Harlem Renaissance as 54 Below celebrates the legacy of 1921’s Shuffle Along, the first all-Black Broadway musical  sensation, on the 102nd anniversary of its first performance on the Great White Way! Join us as we go back to the Jazz Age with a swinging concert designed to make you shake, shimmy, and shuffle along to Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake’s groundbreaking score. With songs like “I’m Just Wild About Harry,” “Love Will Find a Way,” “In Honeysuckle Time,” and “I’m Just Simply Full of Jazz,” you’ll see why the show catapulted the careers of Josephine Baker, Adelaide Hall, Florence Mills, and more—and provided the soundtrack to the Roaring Twenties. Don’t miss this unforgettable celebration of Black Broadway artistry, both past and present. Featuring an all-star cast, this concert is produced and directed by Caseen Gaines (author of When Broadway Was Black). Hosted by Noble Sissle, Jr., with music direction by Gary Mitchell, Jr.
