New Harlem Besame will celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth with a new play: SUGAR RAY on Friday, February 26th at 7 PM. Written by Laurence Holder, this is a one-man show to commemorate the life and legacy of Sugar Ray Robinson. Audelco Award winner Reginald L. Wilson will star in this powerful piece under the direction of Theatre Hall of Famer and Multi Audelco Award winner, Woodie King Jr. The show will take place at New Harlem Besame, located at 2070 Adam Clayton Powell Blvd (124th & 7th), the legendary site of Sugar Ray Enterprises.
In the 1940’s, Sugar Ray Robinson was the “King of Harlem,” and eventually owned a whole city block of buildings that were at the heart of his entrepreneurial empire. The spirit, the power of Sugar Ray will come alive in this historical site in one of Woodie King Jr.’s most profound theater endeavors.
Running Feb. 25th – March 28th. Call 646.863.2077 or 646.261.5397 for more information.
