Blues for an Alabama Sky

by Pearl Cleage
Directed by Jackie Davis
May 29 – June 29, 2025

Sacrifice and dreams during the Jazz Age 

As the creative revolution of the Harlem Renaissance bleeds into the hardships of the Great Depression, four New York friends strive to achieve their dreams. But when Alabama migrant Leland Cunningham sets his eyes on the troubled blues singer Angel, their lives are changed forever. This intimate drama questions where the personal ends and the political begins, probes the intersection of life and art, and asks how we find meaning and direction in the most tumultuous of times.
