It Ain’t Nothin’ But The Blues

About This Show

It Ain’t Nothin’ But The Blues is a musical revue by Charles Bevel, Lita Gaithers, Randal Myler, Ron Taylor, and Dan Wheetman based on an original idea by Ron Taylor, and directed by Randal Myler.

Northlight brings this Tony Award-nominated musical to the home of the blues, Chicago, for the first time ever! From chants born under African skies to mournful laments sprung from the Mississippi Delta, It Ain’t Nothin’ But The Blues travels through centuries of blues history in song and story. From the harrowing metaphors of “Strange Fruit” to the toe-tappin’ beats of “Let the Good Times Roll,” the familiar tunes grab you with the first note. This explosive and ecstatic musical will leave you dancing in the aisles and yelling for more.
