Lackawanna Blues


Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to Manhattan Theatre Club for the Broadway debut of his brilliant solo play, Lackawanna Blues, 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.
