Simply Heavenly archiveWritten in 1957, Simply Heavenly was born out of a series of short stories featuring Jess B Semple's bar room philosophy on life, love and the pursuit of the easy way. An offbeat Harlem everyman living in a rapidly changing America, Simple became Hughes's most enduring character expressing the everyday victories of an ordinary hero. Simply Heavenly first ran on Broadway in 1957, giving a voice through humour and song to the African American experience. With gentle satire, insightful ramblings and street-wise humour Hughes chronicled the hopes and despair of black America.
Performers Clive Rowe, Ruby Turner, Rhashan Stone, Des Coleman, Nicola Hughes, Melanie Marshall, Jason Pennycooke, Cat Simmons, Dale Superville, Paul Kissaun.
