New Haarlem Arts Theatre
James Baldwin's Blues for Mister Charlie
This will be the first major New York production of Baldwin's morality play, which is loosely based on the notorious 1955 killing of Emmett Till, since its Broadway debut in 1964.
This production, designed to entertain and provoke, re-imagines Baldwin’s notions of race, class and gender relations, casting actors beyond racial lines to present a modern complex picture of American culture today.
