Blues for an Alabama Sky
By Pearl Cleage
Directed by McCarter's Associate Artistic Director Nicole A.
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 a 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.
