Following an acclaimed performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival, this soulful musical transports you to the 1930s and a private parlor in Memphis, where sexy and sassy Bessie Smith takes center stage. Don’t miss the amazing life and career, the loves and losses, and the great songs that made her “The Empress of the Blues.”
Recommended for ages 16 and up. Contains strong language, descriptions of violence, drug abuse, and adult themes/activities.
