About this show

The universal language of the blues wails out full and strong in this dynamite "dramatic revue" of twenty-six hot numbers that tell of the sweet, sexy and sorrowful experiences three women have with the lying, cheating snake of a man who does them wrong. With little spoken text, the interweaving stories are defined through glorious songs which cover the range of this indigenous American art form, from Bessie Smith to Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Alberta Hunter, Jimmy Cox, Ida Cox and more, telling of the pain and misery of life and love and also of the dogged determination to get through it all that is the essence of the blues.
