Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad is set to make her Broadway directorial debut with the Broadway premiere of Charles Randolph-Wright's beloved 2000 play Blue (with music by Nona Hendryx).
Performances are expected to begin in spring 2020.
With fierce wit and astonishing honesty, 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.
