A trip to this production at the Signature Theatre

Part of Theatre Connections 2018

In 1949, Detroit’s Blackbottom neighborhood is gentrifying. Blue, a troubled trumpeter and the owner of Paradise Club, is torn between remaining in Blackbottom with his loyal lover Pumpkin and leaving behind a traumatic past. But when the arrival of a mysterious woman stirs up tensions, the fate of Paradise Club hangs in the balance. Paradise Blue is the first production of Obie Award-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau’s Signature Residency. Directed by Tony Award-winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (The Piano Lesson, Jitney), it is a thrilling and timely look at the changes a community endures to find its resilience.

[Tickets at $32 - $35 for this event will go on sale around February 25. Purchasers will also be responsible for train or private transportation.]

The Signature Theatre is located at 480 West 42nd Street, New York City.
