Paradise Blue – Williamstown Theater Festival Audible Season

Paradise Blue

By Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson
With André Holland, Kristolyn Lloyd, Simone Missick, Keith Randolph Smith, Blair Underwood

It’s 1949 in Detroit’s Black Bottom neighborhood, and there’s no better place to hear or play jazz than Paradise Club. Blue (Emmy Award winner, Grammy Award winner, and 2020 Tony Award nominee Blair Underwood), club owner and trumpeter, can wail like no other, but as forces outside the club conspire to irreparably change life inside and outside Paradise’s walls, he must decide whether to stay or sell. Beholden to his girlfriend (Grammy Award winner Kristolyn Lloyd) and fellow bandmates (André Holland and Keith Randolph Smith), Blue faces an uncertain future as he reckons with his troubled past. When Silver (Simone Missick), a smooth and mysterious newcomer from Louisiana, steps onto the scene, everyone in Paradise must choose how to survive and if they can thrive. Tony Award nominee Dominique Morisseau‘s drama, directed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson, had its world premiere at Williamstown Theatre Festival in 2015.
