This dynamite, dramatic revue thrills us with the universal language of the blues.
The soul of the blues wails out full and strong in Blues in the Night, a scorching, Tony-nominated musical! The 26 hot and torchy numbers that tell of the sweet, sexy and sorrowful experiences that three women have with the lying, cheating snake of a man who does them wrong will leave you energized, inspired and ready to wail.
With little spoken text, the interweaving stories are defined through glorious songs that cover the range of this indigenous American art form, from Bessie Smith to Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Alberta Hunter, Jimmy Cox, Ida Cox and more, telling of the pain and misery of life and love... and also of the dogged determination to get through it all... that is the essence of the blues.
Alternately wistful, tender and raunchy, Blues in the Night is a modest production with a larger-than-life score and vocal arrangements designed to bring down the house.
