Blues for an Alabama Sky

by Pearl Cleage, directed by Mikael Burke

September 14 – October 15, 2023

All shows are at Theater Wit – 1229 W Belmont Ave, Chicago IL 60657

It’s 1930 in Harlem and jazz singer Angel has just gotten fired from The Cotton Club. Supported by her closest friends, Angel hopes for her next big break as costume designer Guy, imagines sewing dresses in Paris, and Delia works to bring family planning centers to the community. But all of their dreams are put in jeopardy when Angel meets Leland, a recent Alabama transplant. Will he be the true love Angel has been waiting for or will he forever alter the dynamic of their precious inner circle? Blues for an Alabama Sky by Pearl Cleage is a play about change, struggle, and joy set against the tumultuous backdrop of prohibition, the Jazz Age, and the dawning of The Great Depression.
