A really well written and performed string of vignettes illustrating life and lessons in Lackawanna. Thought provoking, heart breaking, funny and inspiring.

I happen to see Lackawanna Blues on TV and it was wonderful. The theatrical show followed the story line and the actor/s kept your attention throughout the entire monologue. I truly enjoyed the event.

A great show with just two people! The guitar player was excellent and the harmonic playing was amazing! A multitude of people all played by one man! A must see!

Perfect setting (the Mark Taper Forum) is the right size theater for this kind of an intimate show) for a really sweet and sentimental night of storytelling (a great one-man show, or one-man plus a second man playing live guitar behind him).

Absolutely fantastic evening at the theater - a brilliant retelling of tales as Santiago-Hudson leaps from character to character with grace and poignancy. Perhaps the loudest ovation I’ve heard in twenty years of attending shows at the Taper.

Very moving story of Ruben Santiago-Hudson and the personal stories of important people in his life, focusing heavily on the Nanny he grew up with.
