'Lackawanna Blues' Calendar Release


March – April 2019


“Lackawanna Blues”

Written, Performed and Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson


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 the blues music of Obie winning composer Bill Sims Jr.
