book by Loften Mitchell, concept by Rosetta LeNoire


BUBBLING BROWN SUGAR tells the story of Harlem in the Golden Years. Taking many of the great songs from the era, Loften Mitchell has woven an ebullient tale of a time gone by. This musical, which started a whole wave of Broadway shows by and about black composers, had its beginnings at Rosetta LeNoire's Amas Rep. It then moved on to a lengthy run on Broadway, London's West End, and both national and European tours.
