The bluesy, darkly comic musical The Unfortunates makes its mad, magical way to ACT's Strand Theater in San Francisco. Big Joe, a prisoner with oversized hands facing an uncertain end, finds himself navigating a murky dream world of prostitutes, cabaret performers, street walkers and freaks. Confronting a series of enemies, he must risk everything to save the armless courtesan Rae from a plague that has decimated all but a handful of survivors. His fevered journey is marked by a medley of great American music traditions, heated from the fires of gospel, cooled by the sweet sorrow of the blues.
