Welcome To Harlem (Feature Length Musical Comedy)

by Mark Blackman
(New York, NY)

Marty Blackstein, a young man of the new 20-something generation, after realizing that most of Manhattan today seems to be less about art or culture and more about money and corruption (and realizing that he can no longer afford this realization) decides to take a chance and move uptown to Harlem, NYC. Once there, he finds a sea of friendship, love and adventure enveloped in music, dance, grit and one of the most unique neighborhoods (and even more unique blocks) on the planet, and quickly learns that Harlem is not quite what he expected...

A musical comedy in the middle of 151st and Broadway? That sounds crazy…

It is.

Welcome to Harlem is funny, edgy, unorthodox, insightful and creative. Though not easy to send a positive, meaningful message that resonates with people, WTH is able to accomplish it through humor, music and showing people something different from anything they have ever seen before.

All of the writing, music, art, choreography, etc. is 100% original created by artists living in Harlem.

We are currently in pre-production. Principal photography will take place from March 15th to April 30th, 2011, and the film is scheduled to premiere at the Apollo Theater in Harlem in November of 2011.
