Langston Hughes Project a coup for Connoisseur Series
Mar 25, 2008 3:00 PM | Print
A multimedia touring production of deceased American poet and playwright Langston Hughes at his best — insightful, wise, poignant, funny and soulful – will jazz up the Wichita State University campus April 2.
"Ask Your Mama" will open at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, in Miller Concert Hall.
Its mood is set in an 800-line suite of poems written by Hughes in the 1960s that reflect the writer's vision of the global struggle for freedom during the early years of the decade.
Music director and composer Ron McCurdy orchestrates the original musical based on music cues suggested by Hughes.
