Leaving the Blues
Mar 3 - Apr 2, 2017
Celebrated Blues singer-songwriter Alberta Hunter (1895-1984) is backstage preparing for a professional comeback, knowing just how many doors to the past it may open. Spanning 60 years, this world premiere play imagines a journey through the public life Hunter led, the private life she hid, and the ghosts that won’t let her forget.
