Paradise Blue

 

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2019 TO SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2019 

PARADISE BLUE 

Written by Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Justin Emeka

A Regional Premiere. When Blue needs to just get things out, he picks up his trumpet and lets it sing. His jazz club, Paradise, was once the place in Detroit’s Black bottom neighborhood—until the day Silver, a mysterious woman  with a walk that drives men crazy, shows up with her own ideas for Paradise and turns everyone’s world upside  down. Dynamic, sultry, and spiced with humor, Paradise Blue is a new American classic you’ll want to experience.  This dynamic and musically-infused drama shines light on the challenges of building a better future on the foundation of what our predecessors have left us.

Part of 2019/20 Social Justice Series.
