Lackawanna Blues tickets

A richly textured solo play

Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s solo play debuts on Broadway, celebrating the woman who raised him. 

Featuring reminiscences from the 1950s, Lackawanna Blues sees Santiago-Hudson embody over 20 vibrant personalities and characters as he shares the tale of Miss Rachel, also known affectionately as Nanny. In a boarding house just outside Buffalo, Nanny opened her doors to anyone who needed warm words, kindness and care. 

Tony Award winner Santiago-Hudson (Broadway: Seven Guitars; ABC’s Castle), delivers a tour-de-force performance, accompanied by live music performed by Blues Hall of Fame guitarist Junior Mack and written by Bill Sims, Jr.

The play was previously adapted into an Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominated film in 2005, starring S. Epatha Merkerson as Rachel, for HBO.

Lackawanna Blues tickets transport audiences into a rich and uplifting true story, and delivers a masterclass in storytelling. It runs at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre through November 7.
