Sexy and racy, blues singer Bessie Smith was the definition of a Red Hot Mamma and the most successful entertainer of her time. On the eve of her tragic death in 1937, Bessie takes center stage in The Devil's Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith and tells the story of her amazing life and career, her loves and losses. Put your troubles aside and soak up the blues as Bessie Smith comes to life and sings the songs that made her so unforgettable, including "St. Louis Blues," "Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl," and "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out."

The playing schedule for The Devil's Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith is Monday and Tuesday evenings at 7pm, Wednesday evenings at 8pm. St. Luke's Theater is located at 308 West 46th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues. Tickets from $36.50 are available at Telecharge.com or by calling 212/239-6200.
