LACKAWANNA BLUES Hums a Tender Portrait of a Doting Matriarch — Review

Ruben Santiago-Hudson is intimately familiar with Lackawanna Blues, his play which opened Thursday night at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, and not just because he based it on his own upbringing. The one-man ode to the woman who raised him premiered at the Public in 2001, was adapted by HBO in 2005, and has been performed here and there since. And yet, his eyes throughout the show reflect more than a glimmer of the bright lights of Broadway—they spark with the joy of generations and cultures finally expressing themselves on the largest stage in the country.

LACKAWANNA BLUES Brings Love and Solidarity to the Broadway Stage At The End Of The Shutdown

As the New York City theatre community faces the collective reopening of Broadway shows while still reeling from nearly two years of crisis, Lackawanna Blues offers a space for healing within the memories and montages of one man’s childhood in mid-century New York.Based on writer and director Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s own life experiences, Lackawanna Blues is a one-man-and-one-guitarist show commemorating the woman who raised young Santiago-Hudson, Miss Rachel. He describes the play as “a love letter to the Black women that kept our communities standing on solid ground, and provided the sustenance we needed as human beings: spiritually, physically, mentally.” Santiago-Hudson is the only actor, and he is accompanied by blues-rock musician Junior Mack on guitar.
