About Lackawanna Blues: Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to MTC for the Broadway debut of his brilliant solo play celebrating the strong, big-hearted woman who raised him: Miss Rachel. In a 1950s boarding house outside Buffalo, Nanny, as she was affectionately called, opened her doors to anyone and everyone in need of kindness, hope, compassion and care. Giving a tour-de-force performance accompanied by live music written by acclaimed composer Bill Sims, Jr. and performed by Blues Hall of Fame Guitarist Junior Mack, Santiago-Hudson embodies more than 20 vibrant characters, creating a richly textured reminiscence that’s inspiring, uplifting and right at home on Broadway.

On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician.

A New Musical by Joey Contreras
Directed by Tommy Iafrate
Music Directed by Robyn Womersley

PERFORMING NOV. 18-21, 2021 IN WATTERS THEATER

In Pieces is a new musical review with a pop-musical theatre score whose emotional sensitivity and anthemic bops explore the romantic journeys of eight contemporary twentysomethings seeking love in the city as they share, ponder, and reflect on their chosen paths and partners along the way. There’s the scary excitement of being vulnerable and boldly saying yes to the adventures ahead. The magical first kiss. Unlikely friendships. Well-kept secrets. Monotony. Rebounds. An awkward reunion on the subway. And honest conversations of deserving more. All these pieces of life at times connect and disconnect, but from a distance they come together to create a universal mosaic of what it’s like to be young and learning in love.
