This is the Washington premiere of the award-winning musical about the legendary blues and jazz singer Alberta Hunter. A unique blend of soulful blues and riveting biography, Cookin' at the Cookery covers the
remarkable life of this singular talent: her birth in Memphis in 1895, her international career
that flourished from the 20's through the 40's, and her triumphant comeback at The Cookery
in Greenwich Village, after 50 years, at the age of 82.
