About this show

A magical, musical, and deeply personal work written, performed, and directed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Lackawanna Blues is a reminiscence of his 1950s childhood in a small town on the banks of Lake Erie. Santiago-Hudson takes on more than 20 colorful characters — from would-be philosophers and petty hustlers to lost souls and abandoned lovers — in a brilliant celebration of the eccentric boardinghouse he grew up in. Santiago-Hudson returns to his roots in this tour de force performance accompanied throughout by live blues music performed by Obie Award-winning composer Bill Sims Jr.

As an acclaimed writer, performer, and director, Santiago-Hudson brings his powerful and touching solo play Lackawanna Blues to the Mark Taper Forum.
