WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
What happens when our shelter, cars, clothes, loves – every instrument we use to connect our lives or shield ourselves from the pains of this world – are scattered and swept away? Set in New Orleans, the play opens just after Katrina's rage and the flood begins. It spans 60 years exploring the love triangle of two Blues musicians and their manager. This piece speaks to musicians, African Americans, the aging, and anyone who has loved. As hurricane Katrina lashes New Orleans, and the flood waters rise, blues singer Joe reflects on the love he lost years back when he refused that time too to leave his home. A story of love and betrayal, with a bow to the real life travails of jazz artist Billy Tipton (who lived as a man although she was a woman). What has been called "vibrant, poetic writing intermingled with The Blues" will take you on an amazing personal journey.
