Let this mighty, moving, autobiographical play sing to your soul

Lackawanna Blues

Written, Performed & Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson
July 9 – 25, 2020
Huntington Avenue Theatre, 264 Huntington Avenue

We’ve temporarily suspended ticket sales for Lackawanna Blues and are looking to reschedule this production. We will reach out to all ticketholders when new dates are announced.

Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to the Huntington where he was memorably seen in August Wilson’s Gem of the Ocean and Seven Guitars in his riveting, lyrical, and gorgeous autobiographical play about growing up in the 1950s in a boarding house on the banks of Lake Erie. At the center of it all is Miss Rachel, or Nanny, the woman who raised young Ruben and welcomed a colorful group of eccentrics into her home and heart. The Los Angeles Times says this tour-de-force work with live blues music “enthralls,” adding, “Santiago-Hudson conjures multitudes with his rich memory and malleable voice.” And The New York Times says that it’s “performed with marvelous subtlety and rare humanity.”

Production in association with Two River Theaterx
