Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s Lackawanna Blues begin performances Tuesday, September 14, 2021, at 6:45pm, and opens Tuesday, September 28, 2021, at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The show is written, performed, and directed by Tony Award-winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson, with original music by Bill Sims Jr. performed on stage by Grammy Award-nominated blues guitarist Junior Mack.

Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to MTC for the Broadway debut of his brilliant solo play celebrating the strong, big-hearted woman who raised him: Miss Rachel. In a 1950s boarding house outside Buffalo, Nanny, as she was affectionately called, opened her doors to anyone and everyone in need of kindness, hope, compassion, and care. Giving a tour-de-force performance accompanied by live music written by acclaimed composer Bill Sims Jr. and performed by Blues Hall of Fame Guitarist Junior Mack, Santiago-Hudson embodies more than 20 vibrant characters, creating a richly textured reminiscence that’s inspiring, uplifting, and right at home on Broadway. The creative team includes Michael Carnahan (scenic design), Karen Perry (costume design), Jen Schriever (lighting design), Darron L West (sound design), Bill Sims Jr (original music), and Kamra A. Jacobs (production stage manager).

Lackawanna Blues runs approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
