In the summer heat of 1930’s Harlem, the high spirited and artistic euphoria of the Harlem renaissance has given way to the harsh realities of the Great Depression. Harlem churches struggle to feed the hungry and save souls, while Harlem doctors and leaders scramble to save lives and mend the wounds of poverty. In the midst of these unstable and desperate times, the people in Harlem held on to their hopes for the future and dared to dream. Some people dreamed to temporarily escape reality, laughing to keep from crying. Others dreamed their way to Paris. The sensational Josephine Baker set Paris on fire, dancing her way into the hearts of the world, while Langston Hughes - sometimes in Paris, but mainly in Harlem - captured the joy and pain of his people in rhythm and rhyme. Both artists are inspirations in bringing this piece to life. Josephine was an example of big dreams come true and Langston curiously asked… What Happens to a Dream Deferred? Does it Shrivel Up like a Raisin in the Sun? Or Fester like a Sore and then Run? Does it Stink like Rotten Meat? Or Crust and Sugar Over like a Syrupy Sweet? Maybe It Just Sags like a Heavy Load. --Or Does it Explode? Langston Hughes
