Jubilee Theatre is ecstatic to present their first musical of the year! Loften Mitchell’s Bubbling Brown Sugar will be on stage March 22 – April 28, 2019. Journey back in time to the Harlem Renaissance (1920-1940) when audiences flocked to the area’s popular nightclubs to see the greatest talents entertain. Artists like Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Billie Holiday created a golden age of music with their exciting sounds and glamorous shows. You’ll jam, jump, and jive to this exuberant, three-time Tony-nominated musical revue.
Bubbling Brown Sugar is directed by Michael Serrecchia who shares this musical celebrates “the Golden Years of Harlem, its history, it’s great artists and its glorious music.” The hope for patrons is to enjoy, sing-along and even jive a little with the hit tunes!
