International City Theatre
330 East Seaside Way Long Beach

The soul of the blues wails out full and strong in Blues in the Night, a scorching, Tony and Olivier award-nominated musical. Set in 1948 in a rundown Chicago hotel, three women and a man share their stories about the misery and humor of life, love and the dogged determination to do more than just survive. The drama reveals itself through 26 hot, torchy, glorious songs by Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Alberta Hunter, Harold Arlen, Jimmy Cox, Ida Cox and more.
