ABOUT THE SHOW
Blue, a gifted trumpeter, contemplates selling his once-vibrant jazz club in Detroit’s Blackbottom neighborhood to shake free the demons of his past and better his life. But where does that leave his devoted Pumpkin, who has dreams of her own? And what does it mean for the club’s resident bebop band? When a mysterious woman with a walk that drives men mad comes to town with her own plans, everyone’s world is turned upside down. This dynamic and musically-infused drama shines light on the challenges of building a better future.
“…a juicy and resonant piece of writing filled to the brim with complex, empathetic characters. It is not hard to become involved with their choices and worry about their futures.” – Chicago Tribune
