Ghost of the Blues

“Where do the greatest Blues legends go when they pass into Blues Heaven?” asks the creators of Ghost of the Blues. The answer: on tour. During this new Broadway revue, departed blues icons such as Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, and Etta James grace the stage again thanks to a talented cast, period costumes, and blazing guitar work.

The show opens near the grave where Johnson made his notorious deal with the Devil to be the greatest bluesman alive, then traverses through the changing sound of the blues until it brushes up against the emergence of rock ‘n’ roll. In act two, the setting changes to a jukejoint teeming with household names such as Little Walter and Koko Taylor, who treat the audience to a time-traveling experience rife with dancing and deep bass lines.

Florida Theatre

When it opened in 1927, the Florida Theatre was the largest of 15 cinemas in downtown Jacksonville. Today, it's the city's last surviving vestige of that era's iconic architecture. Designed by New Yorker R.E. Hall and Jacksonvillian Roy Benjamin, the venue is a prime example of the Mediterranean Revival style, with a ceiling covered in glittering stars and a six-story proscenium arch. And even as the entertainment industry shifted towards television, the Florida Theatre survived by hosting interactive game nights and concerts from underground artists, including Elvis Presley. The space was renovated In the early 1980s, and today it returns to its entertaining roots by hosting live events and classic film screenings.
