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.

Ruben Santiago-Hudson, the writer, performer, and director of this play, is extremely talented; he single-handly made the many colorful characters in his play come alive. His memories of growing up in a boarding house in upstate NY, especially...continued

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.

Wonderful story telling by an accomplished actor/musician. A vivid portrayal of the people who made up his world . The love and compassion were foremost throughout. This was a wonderful way to spend my evening.

Wow! What an amazing performance. One man was able to bring to life dozens of unique characters. Alone on stage with just a single blue guitar accompaniment (which was stellar) he kept the audience engaged for an uninterrupted 80 minutes. Not...continued

Such a great play! There's so much talent in Ruben. He can sing, act, imitate and such a great harmonica player! We enjoyed every minute of it. Lackawanna Blues is captivating, sad and funny. The set is simple and the production makes good...continued

Superbly written and acted. Emotionally engaging characters. A small town story that has universal themes. Excellent musical accompaniment (blue guitar and harmonica). I brought my mother who is 80 and a nephew who is 16 and both loved the show.
