Side Man

Warren Leight’s Tony Award-winning play looks at the decline of jazz through the lens of one small, fractured family. Gene, a trumpet player, and Terry, his embittered wife, struggle and spar, with their only son caught in the middle. That little boy, Clifford, narrates the story as a now-grown man, giving audiences a glimpse into a tumultuous time—albeit one filled with music, love, and even the occasional laugh.

American Blues Theater

Stories of bygone royal families and dispossessed tycoons have no place at American Blues Theater, winner of American Theatre Wing’s prestigious 2016 National Theatre Company Award. Rather, the ensemble showcases the American ideas of freedom, equality, and opportunity by telling home-grown stories while pairing production missions with different service agencies. Since its founding in 1985, the company has presented such sepia-hued favorites as On the Waterfront and Oklahoma, all focused on depicting working-class concerns. Their approach has struck a chord in the community—the theater’s members have been honored with numerous Joseph Jefferson Awards, Black Theater Alliance Awards, Writers’ Guild Awards, Pulitzer Prize nominations, Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards, and numerous other accolades.
