In the House of Blues

A YOUNG woman named Melody inherits a long-deserted blues club in Harlem in David Charles’s ”In the House of Blues” …. [T]he very lively ghosts of the singers and dancers who emerge from the shadows of the club to demonstrate Melody’s heritage turn ”In the House of Blues” into a series of delightful cameos that find fresh ways to invoke aspects of black music of the 1920’s and 30’s. – From John S. Wilson’s NY Times Review

Presented as part of the 1985-86 Season
