The Bow Wow Club is about friendship, love, responsibility, and survival. After almost 20 years, five teenage friends reunite and are forced to choose between their differences or the power of their lifelong bond.

Levy Lee Simon weaves a riveting tale of what happened to
The Bow Wow Club once they left the security of the insecure streets of Harlem. The show portray’s their hopes, dreams, disappointments, successes and the shocking changes that take place in their lives. Each one of these Dawg's has looked for acceptance and compromise in a modern world that has proven to be as big an adversary as the rival gang's of their youth.
