Phylicia Rashad, who starred in both the play's 2000 world premiere at Arena Stage and 2001 New York premiere at Roundabout Theatre Company, makes her Broadway directorial debut in the Broadway premiere of the Charles Randolph-Wright and Nona Hendryx comedy. Blue explores the complexities of identity and trust behind the carefully constructed façade of the Clarks, a socially prominent family that is struggling with the legacy and pitfalls of their own good fortune. Infused with a searing jazz and soul score, Blue celebrates the love and spirit of a family coming to terms with itself.
SYNOPSIS: Three generations of a small-town South Carolina family. Feisty matriarch, Tillie, gives son Sam Jr. unsolicited advice about running the family business. Sam III runs with the girls, 12-year-old Reuben runs errands, and fashion-conscious Peggy runs up the credit cards.
