Chicago 1939: In a shabby, down-at-heel hotel in the wrong part of town, three women share one thing in common – their relationship with a no-good, dirty, cheating rat of a man. In, BLUES IN THE NIGHT, their tales of heartbreak, poverty, passion, lust and redemption are told through the raw, heady soul of blues, including the music of Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, and many more.
Nearly thirty years after first opening in London, where it received Olivier Award nominations for Best New Musical, we celebrate Blues In The Night at the London Hippodrome for two performances only. Featuring sultry classics including “Wild Women Don’t Have The Blues”, “Taking A Chance of Love” and “Blues In The Night”, performed by a live blues band, this sexy, sultry musical – Tony- nominated for Best Musical on Broadway – is a must-see!
