The Great Depression hits Harlem and closes the Lafayette Theater, throwing Florrie's actor dad out of work. The only reminder of the Lafayette's glory days is the Tree of Hope growing beside the theater. If a wish is made on the tree, good luck will follow. Florrie and her father wish for better times. When Orson Welles decides to stage "Macbeth" at the Lafayette, it seems their wish may be coming true. Full-color illustrations.
