Music by Harlem Renaissance composer J.C. Johnson & Friends
Book By: Gary Holmes and Allan Shapiro
Directed and Choreographed by Patdro Harris
Musical Direction by Carlton Leake

A humorous, heart-warming story of three couples playing the game of love in 1930's Harlem. The action centers on George, a retired Pullman porter and church deacon, and the intriguing stranger he meets who is not the person she seems to be. The jazz-inflected score celebrates the music of Harlem Renaissance composer J. C. Johnson (1896-1981), and is reminiscent of many well-known, bluesy Broadway shows.

Trav'lin captures the music and energy of Harlem through the vision of this renowned composer. Johnson’s music has been performed and recorded by numerous stars including Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, Fred Astaire, Duke Ellington and Count Basie; and has been heard on Broadway in Ain't Misbehavin' and Me and Bessie.

Featured cast members include: Anthony Boggess Glover, Brandon Delagraentiss, Regina Hearne, Andre’ Neal, An’Gelle Sylvester, and Aisha Ussery.
