About This Show

The soul of the blues wails out full and strong when Long Beach’s International City Theatre, in association with LA’s Ebony Repertory Theatre, presents the Tony- and Olivier-winning musical, Blues in the Night. Set in 1948 in a rundown Chicago hotel, three women and a man share their stories about the misery and humor of life, love and the dogged determination to do more than just survive. The drama reveals itself through 26 hot, torchy, glorious songs by Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Alberta Hunter, Harold Arlen, Jimmy Cox, Ida Cox and more.

Conceived by Sheldon Epps and directed by Wren T. Brown, producing artistic director of LA’s Ebony Repertory Theatre and director of ICT’s 2019 hit production of Lady Day at Emerson‘s Bar & Grill.
