Description

City Theater Company returns to the Wings Black Box in their new residence at The Delaware Contemporary with the World Premiere of Blues In My Soul, a new play with music by David Robson.

Based on a true story, Blues In My Soul re-imagines a fateful 1959 meeting between guitar legend Lonnie Johnson and music historian Chris Albertson. The two men riff together on issues of authenticity, injustice, and legacy as they work their way through a catalog of great blues tunes – performed here with the blessing of the Johnson estate.

Blues In My Soul features CTC alums Righteous Jolly and Christopher Banker, with musician Joe Beckett making his CTC debut. Directed by Joe Trainor. Written by David Robson. Stage managed by Stuart Thomas. Set design by Rick Neidig. Lighting design by Stuart Thomas. Art by Joe del Tufo and Joe Trainor.

LIMITED ENGAGEMENT – FOUR SHOWS ONLY!
