Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic follows the (non)-adventures of a wizard named Wayne, his two somewhat familiar friends and the lovably underachieving members of a particular house, who are left to sit on the sidelines as a certain star student and his pals experience all the evil-battling excitement.

Catherine Russell has starred as Brent, missing but a scant four performances, since the show opened in 1987, earning her a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The first Broadway play written by an African-American woman, A Raisin in the Sun is a masterpiece that The New York Times credits with changing American theater forever. First produced in 1959 and adapted two years later into a now-classic film starring Sidney Poitier, A Raisin in the Sun is as powerful today as it was 50 years ago. Now Harlem Repertory Theatre presents the limited return of this incredible story to their stage -- a story that follows the Youngers, an African-American family attempting to move from a crowded two-bedroom apartment into a "white" neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. But a new house is just one of the Youngers' many dreams. Three generations each yearn for different versions of a better life -- whether it's a business, or a spouse, or the right to live with long-denied dignity.
