Blues for an Alabama Sky directed by Phylicia Rashad at the Mark Taper Forum

Harlem, 1930. Where the Blues are getting bluer and the gin is running dry.

A free-spirited Cotton Club singer has just been fired with nowhere left to go but down. So, she turns to her best friend, an extravagant costume designer with plans to dress Josephine Baker in Paris. Maybe they can run away together. Or maybe the handsome southerner that just came knocking can offer an even better life. But the saxophone dreams of Harlem rarely end as smoothly as they start.

The legendary Phylicia Rashad directs the fearlessly bold, intoxicatingly seductive, and surprisingly contemporary Blues for an Alabama Sky by Pearl Cleage (Oprah’s Book Club selection What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day) that’s so ahead of its time, it’s right on time.

Starring the incredible talents of Nija Okoro, Greg Alvarez Reid, Joe Holt, Kim Steele and Dennis Pearson. Casting by Kim Coleman, CSA.

Presented by Center Theatre Group. Opens April 13th 2022 and will run through May 8th 2022 at the historic Mark Taper Forum.
