Lackawanna Blues has been extended again. Star and creator Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s solo show will now play through November 12 at the Samuel J Friedman Theatre. Opening night was delayed due to a back injury sustained by Santiago-Hudson.
Written, performed and directed by Santiago-Hudson, the production features original music by Bill Sims Jr. performed on stage by Grammy Award-nominated blues guitarist Junior Mack as Santiago-Hudson embodies more than 20 characters.
Lackawanna Blues is set in a 1950s boarding house outside Buffalo as Miss Rachel opens her doors to anyone and everyone in need of kindness, hope, compassion and care.
