Following its celebrated opening at Seattle Repertory Theatre, Pullman Porter Blues travels across the country in its world-premiere co-production at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater. Inspired by her grandfather's work on the postal trains, playwright Cheryl L. West, whose work at Arena Stage includes Jar the Floor and Play On!, returns with the tale of three Pullman train porters whose journey is underscored by Midwest blues songs, including "Sweet Home Chicago" and "This Train." Directed by Lisa Peterson (Arena's The Rainmaker and The Quality of Life), Pullman Porter Blues runs November 23, 2012 – January 6, 2013 in the Kreeger Theater.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

Faye Butler (Sister Juba), Emily Chisholm (Lutie), Cleavant Derricks (Sylvester), James Patrick Hill (Twist), Jmichael (Musical Director/Keys), Lamar Lofton (Shorty), Felicia Loud (Understudy for Sister Juba), Chic Street Man (Slick), Larry Marshall (Monroe), Warner Miller (Cephas), Richard Ziman (Tex).
