Blues in the Night - 8/7/2007

Sheldon Epps' Tony-nominated "Blues in the Night" will return for an all-star San Francisco production.

Starring jazz and R&B singer Freda Payne (Hallejulah, Baby!), Maurice Hines (Hot Feet, Sophisticated Ladies), Paulette Ivory (Aida tour) and Carol Woods (Chicago, Follies), the show will begin performances in an exclusive San Francisco engagement at San Francisco's Post Street Theatre (450 Post Street) on Tuesday, August 7th. Opening night is Wednesday, August 15th.

The show "takes place in the late 1930's in a cheap Chicago hotel located at the deserted corner of Wilson and Broadway where three women and a saloon singer let the music that gets them through their lonely nights wash over a deserving audience before sending them back into their own nights. Sheldon Epps' blues-drenched and jazz-painted elegy to the vulnerable solitude of these four struggling, hard-drinking, law abiding folks just trying to make it through another long, hot, humid Chicago night uses the great songs of the 1920's and 1930's to explore their lives and the history of their music. The songs have been specifically chosen to accomplish several things, but their most important function is to celebrate a great period and style of American music and to explore the influences and the roots of the jazz idiom as they grew from blues music." The performance schedule is: Tuesday through Friday evenings at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 & 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 & 7 p.m. Tickets range in price from $40 - $75 for regular performances. All seats for preview performances are $35. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 13th at the Post Street Theatre Box Office, by phone at 415-771-6900 and on the web at
