Lackawanna Blues

Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to MTC for the Broadway debut of his brilliant solo play celebrating the strong, big-hearted woman who raised him: Miss Rachel. Giving a tour-de-force performance accompanied by live blues music, Santiago-Hudson embodies more than 20 vibrant characters, creating a richly textured reminiscence that’s inspiring, uplifting and right at home on Broadway.

Lackawanna Blues will premiere on Broadway in fall 2021 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

About Lackawanna Blues:

In a 1950s boarding house outside Buffalo, Nanny, as she was affectionately called, opened her doors to anyone and everyone in need of kindness, hope, compassion and care.
