This R&B-pop-music theatre work by Eisa Davis is a fantasy about the contemporary art world inspired by the artistic and intellectual leaders from the heyday of the Harlem Renaissance.
The show unfolds through a menu of songs including the title song, "Flowers Are Sleeping," as well as numbers such as" Turn Out The Light," "Clear House," "Black Girl Bullet," "The Souls of Black Folk," "Don't Know Nothing About the Blues," and more.
"Her ability to interweave all of her passions---language and performing, in addition to music and politics---singles Davis out as a one-of-a-kind artist."
