WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Rhythm/Da Blues follows Lena, a young woman who grew up in a family of storytellers. When it was her turn to take the mic, she had plenty to say, but not enough courage to spit it. That's when her Auntie, Miss B. Darling, a trans woman and businessperson, steps in to teach Lena how to find the beat. Playing multiple characters, Wade brings her own brand of southern charm and ferocious wit to this celebration of family, first loves, and #BlackGirlMagic. The Gnome Haus presents this world premiere solo show from writer and performer E.E. Wade.
