Hi-De-Ho

This cautionary tale follows an innocent small town girl named Minnie who moves to Harlem and falls victim to the dangerous, decadent, and seductive world of sex, drugs, and jazz. This original tale is loosely adapted from songs made famous by Cab Calloway in the 1920s and 1930s and features ten songs played by a live, eight-piece jazz band.

WARNING:

This outrageous cautionary tale is not for the faint of heart and may induce fits of jitterbugging.



That dual-faceted portrayal — which hints at how addiction, like a puppeteer, manipulates Minnie and her beau — is just one of the doublings and oppositions that give the show a bracingly textured look and resonance.
