“Performed with marvelous subtlety and rare humility”—The New York Times

 magical, musical, and deeply personal work written and performed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-HudsonLackawanna Blues is a reminiscence of his 1950s childhood growing up 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 with live blues music by composer Bill Sims Jr.
