About The Poster: This is the German version of the poster for the hit broadway musical 'Bubbling Brown Sugar'.
'Bubbling Brown Sugar' was a musical revue written by Loften Mitchell based on a concept by Rosetta LeNoire and featuring the music of numerous African-American artists who were popular during the Harlem Renaissance, 1920–1940, including Duke Ellington, Eubie Black, Count Basie, Cab Calloway, and Fats Waller. Original music, including the title theme song "Bubbling Brown Sugar" was composed by pianist Emme Kemp, a protégé of the legendary Eubie Blake. It was nominated for the Tony Award for 'Best Musical' and the Laurence Olivier Award for 'Best New Musical'.
The show was set in a Harlem nightclub of the 1920s-1940s. It originally played at the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew, opening February 15, 1975, and running for 12 performances. It opened on Broadway at the August Wilson Theater (then-ANTA Playhouse) on March 2, 1976, and closed on December 31, 1977, after 766 performances.
