WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The soul of the blues wails out full and strong in Blues in the Night, the scorching Tony and Olivier Award-nominated musical. The 26 hot and torchy numbers — by icons Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, and more — tell of the sweet, sexy, and sorrowful experiences that three women have with a lying, cheating, snake of a man who represents all the men who do them wrong. The Wallis is honored to have Los Angeles theater luminary Sheldon Epps return to his breakout hit. Staged in the intimate Lovelace Studio Theater, Blues in the Night will leave audiences energized, inspired, and ready to wail.
