Paradise Blue

Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 2:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

New play by Dominique Morisseau at Signature Theatre, NYC

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 or leaving behind a traumatic past. With the arrival of a mysterious woman, the fate of Paradise Club hangs in the balance. It is a look at the changes a community endures to find its resilience.

Directed by Tony Award-winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (The Piano Lesson, Jitney), the cast includes Obie Award-winner Francois Battiste (Head of Passes), Kristolyn Lloyd (Dear Evan Hansen), J. Alphonse Nicholson (“Luke Cage”) and Keith Randolph Smith (Jitney).

Participants will be responsible for train or private transportation. Information on travel and lunch options will be sent shortly before the event.

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