Fantastic evening! Uplifting, vibrant performances. The ongoing slideshow in the background really added to the meaning of the blues songs. The vibrant songs in the 2nd act really rate a "wow!". Go see it.

Description

This red-hot Broadway hit is a foot-stomping, high-voltage journey in song. From African chants and Delta spirituals to the urban electricity of a Chicago nightclub, from dusty backroad bluegrass to the twang of a country juke joint, it is a stirring retrospective of blues classics.
