THE ORIGINAL CAST MEMBERS OF THE MUSICAL
Ronnie Dyson and Walter M. Harris, (Spring 1968)
...is there an answer
in their sweet faces
that tells me why I live and die?
(from "Where do I go?")
WO GEH ICH HIN?
FOLG ICH DEN WOLKEN?
WO IST DER WEG, DEN ICH NICHT SEH?
WER WEISS DIE ANTWORT AUF MEINE FRAGE,
WARUM ICH LEBE UND VERGEH...?
WHY DID THEY GO?
TO YOU, WHO'VE JOINED THE BIG TRIBE IN THE SKY:
Lamont Washington as HUD
singing "Colored Spade"
(that's Gerry Ragni on the floor)

followed by Jonathan Kramer, Ronnie Dyson and Lamont Washington.

THIS PAGE IS ALWAYS UNDER CONSTRUCTION!
I have not given up on my original plan to tell you about all those
Broadway and off Broadway Tribe Members who luckily are still among us,
and pursuing a wide variety of careers.
If you have any info you'd like included, please tell me about it!
