Two River Theater, the company responsible for mounting the original production of Broadway's Be More Chill, presents Oo-Bla-Dee, written by Golden Globe winner Regina Taylor, with lyrics by Taylor and music by Diedre L. Murray. Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, the production opens June 14 and is set to continue performances through june 30.
According to production notes, "Oo-Bla-Dee follows Evelyn Waters and the Diviners, an all-black, all-female jazz band, as they travel from St. Louis to Chicago in order to set up a record deal following the end of World War II. On this trip toward freedom the latest member of the group, sax player Gin Del Sol, must wrestle with the complex timing of the music as well as the complicated times in which she lives."
