Stage and screen veteran Jasmine Guy stars in True Colors' Theatre Company production of Pearl Cleage's Blues for an Alabama Sky, directed by Andrea Frye. It's 1930 Harlem, and torch singer Angel Allen's auditions and dreams are fading as quickly as the bright lights and creative euphoria of the Harlem Renaissance, giving way to the harsh realities of the Great Depression. Tired of "Negro Dreams", she thinks safety lies on the broad back of the new stranger in town. But people are starting to get mean and the Harlem night is no place for a southern boy with romantic notions of "Alabama skies where the stars are so thick it's bright as day".
