About

Ambition and art collide with the business of the blues in this red hot play filled with the live music that made the '20s roar. An American masterpiece, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is set in 1927 Chicago in a ramshackle recording studio. Ma Rainey, the undisputed queen of the blues, squares off against a battling quartet of musicians and a tight-fisted producer. As egos and ideologies clash in an increasingly violent way, the band enters a battle of wills in this Tony Award® Winning powerhouse of a play.
