November 21st - December 5th, at the New Federal Theater, 466 Grand Street (downtown), tickets $25. Knock Me a Kiss is a play showing downtown that fictionalizes the uptown "wedding of the century." The year is 1928 which is the height of the Harlem Renaissance and renowned African-American intellectual W.E.B. Du Bois has set up a marriage with his young daughter Yolande to the Renaissance's famous poet, Countee Cullen. Based on true life events, the main problem to this perfect marriage of intellect, beauty and art was that Countee Cullen would soon confess to his new wife that his proclivities were towards the masculine ideal. The Times gave it a pretty good review and we often wonder why not a lot of small Harlem Renaissance plays like this one ever make it uptown: LINK.
