This show is part of the New York Musical theatre Festival. It follows the romantic travails of three couples, in their 50s, 30s, and 20s, learning about love in 1930s Harlem. the tuneful and jazzy period score rediscovers the music of Harlem Renaissance songwriter J.C. Johnson, a friend and colleague of such musical icons as Fats Waller, Bessie Smith, ethel Waters and Billie Holiday. the story centers on George, unofficial mayor of 132nd Street and self-styled expert on love, who meets his match when he befriends a down-on-her-luck stranger who is not who she seems.
