Barbara Rodgers talks to the cast and crew in the production of Blues for an Alabama Sky at the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre – April 2012 (12:04)

The Lorraine Hansberry has undergone a renaissance of its own… so it seemed fitting … when host of The Bounce Report Barbara Rodgers stopped by, Pearle Cleage’s play about the Harlem Renaissance was onstage… Blues For an Alabama Sky.

Playwright Pearl Cleage wrote Blues For An Alabama Sky in the 1990s, yet she set it in the 1930’s, and while these actors never lived through that era, they seem to connect with the characters, like the sassy Angel Allen, played by Shinelle Azoroh.

“There’s a lot of pride, excitement, and nervousness,” says Azoroh. ” Because you want to live up to this is a great thing… just a lot of pride.”
