Loretta Greco, who piloted Two Sisters and a Piano at the Public last season, will direct Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s Lackawanna Blues at the same theatre. The drama will star Tony winning Santiago-Hudson and begin previews April 6 at LuEsther Hall. Lackawanna Blues completes the Public's 2000-01 roster.

Santiago-Hudson won his Tony for August Wilson's Seven Guitars, in which he played a gentle and comical philosopher-musician. He has, however, rarely been seen on the New York stage since. His play takes place in 1956 in Lackawanna, New York and centers on Miss Rachel's boarding house, a gathering spot for "would-be philosophers, petty hustlers, lost souls, and abandoned lovers." Original music will be composed and performed live by guitarist Bill Sims.
