WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's June of 1937, and the Panama Limited Pullman Train is speeding from Chicago to New Orleans on the night of the Joe Louis/James Braddock world heavyweight championship. Three generations of Sykes men--African American train porters--wrestle with ghosts of the past and dreams for the future as they eagerly await word of the Brown Bomber's victory. Set to timeless Blues tunes performed by a live, on-stage band, Pullman Porter Blues is a spirited, music-infused ride you won't soon forget!
