Los Angeles News   Watch Tony Winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson in Selection From Music-Filled Solo Show Lackawanna Blues
 
The production is currently in previews at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.

Watch a portion of a rehearsal for Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s solo play Lackawanna Blues, which began previews March 5 at Los Angeles’ Mark Taper Forum, in the video above.

Produced by Center Theatre Group, Lackawanna Blues is written, performed, and directed by Santiago-Hudson (Seven Guitars, Jitney) with live music performed by Grammy-winning blues guitarist, composer, and actor Chris Thomas King. The production runs through April 21 with opening set for March 13.

Lackawanna Blues is a reminiscence of Santiago-Hudson’s 1950s childhood in a small town on the banks of Lake Erie. The Tony-winning actor takes on more than 20 characters—from would-be philosophers and petty hustlers to lost souls and abandoned lovers—in a celebration of the eccentric boardinghouse he grew up in.

Original music for the production is composed by Bill Sims Jr. with additional music composed by King. The design team includes scenic designer Michael Carnahan, costume designer Karen Perry, lighting designer Jen Schriever, and sound designer Philip G. Allen. The production stage manager is David S. Franklin.
