About this show

Blues diva Ma Rainey and her band have come to a Chicago studio to cut a record, but their artistic differences nearly stop the session before it starts. Full of unforgettable characters and the raw power of the blues, the 1920s installment of Wilson's groundbreaking cycle of plays confronts issues of race, fame, and generational divides through the rhythms of the African-American South.
