On Sale Now! Craig Harris' God's Trombones w/Avery Brooks, Dec 5-7


Craig Harris' God's Trombones returns to Harlem with an
inspiring new production at the magnificent Harlem Stage
Gatehouse after last spring's triumph at the Apollo
Theater. This music theater interpretation, created by

of poems based on inspirational sermons by itinerant
African-American preachers.
