Directed by Ron OJ Parson

FEB 8–MAR 3, 2024
Octagon Stage | Recommended Ages 12+
Run time: 2 hours, including a 15-minute intermission


The soul of the blues wails out full and strong in Blues in the Night, a scorching, Tony-nominated musical! The 26 hot and torchy numbers tell of the sweet, sexy, and sorrowful experiences three women have with the lying, cheating snake of a man who does them wrong. Glorious songs from Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Alberta Hunter, Jimmy Cox, Ida Cox, and more tell of the pain and misery of life and love — and the dogged determination to get through it all — that is the essence of the blues. 

Book your stageside cabaret table! Comes with two drink tickets per patron (your order delivered before the show and at intermission). Just choose the VIP option when you book your performance.
