Blues for an Alabama Sky

May 27 • 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


McCarter Theatre presents Blues for an Alabama Sky by Pearl Cleage, directed by McCarter’s Associate Artistic Director Nicole Watson.

In a Depression-era Harlem apartment building, a close-knit group of friends has become a chosen family. New roommates Angel and Guy — a recently fired blues singer and a promising costume designer with Paris in his sights — live across the hall from Delia, a social worker who sparks a relationship with the hardworking doctor Sam. Their lives are upturned when Southern newcomer Leland arrives and falls hard for Angel, who is torn between a stable life in New York City and an exhilarating overseas adventure with Guy. Angel chooses her path, but the decision leads to devastating consequences that shift the trajectory of everyone’s futures and long-held dreams.
