The New York premiere of 20th Century Blues, a new play by Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-winning playwright Susan Miller, officially opened November 26 at The Pershing Square Signature Center. The play looks at the lives of four women—from the mundane and the familial, to the deeply personal—who have known one another for over 40 years.
