About This Show

From African chants and Delta spirituals to the urban electricity of a Chicago nightclub, from dusty backroads bluegrass, to the twang of a country juke joint, It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues is a stirring retrospective of blues classics that summons the soul of American music. Told with historical sweep and irresistible energy, The New York Times calls this Tony Award nominee "rich, evocative, rousing…more than a musical feast." Helmed by director Randal Myler, this scorching songfest features celebrated blues artist "Mississippi" Charles Bevel, TheatreWorks veterans Alison Ewing, James Monroe Iglehart, and Michelle E. Jordan, plus Tony Marcus and Chic Street Man, who will be making their TheatreWorks debuts.
