FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Creative Cauldron Presents Scorching Musical Blues in the Night
February 9 – March 5, 2017 at ArtSpace Falls Church
Falls Church, VA – Creative Cauldron presents the Tony-Award Nominated Musical Blues in the Night, directed by Creative Cauldron’s Artistic Associate, Matt Conner. Set in a rundown hotel in Chicago 1938, Blues in the Night was conceived and originally directed by Sheldon Epps. It weaves a breadth of stories defined through twenty-six classic songs that cover the range of the quintessential American art form. The show takes its title from the Academy Award-Nominated blues standard by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer. The first act features lush big band numbers like “Am I Blue?”, made famous by Eddie Cochran and Ray Charles, and “I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues”, a Billie Holiday standard. It also features raunchy tunes like “Rough and Ready Man” and “Reckless Blues”, favorites of Alberta Hunter and Bessie Smith. The soulful voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Nina Simone can be heard in the second act’s heartfelt torch songs like “These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)” and “Willow Weep for Me”.
