About Blues for an Alabama Sky

Orange is the New Black’s Samira Wiley and Hamilton’s Giles Terera star in Pearl Cleage’s Blues for an Alabama Sky at the National Theatre in autumn 2022. Blues for an Alabama Sky tickets are available on London Theatre now.

In 1920s New York, the Harlem Renaissance changed the lives of African American artists, creatives, and writers. Taking place during the ‘Roaring Twenties’ era, the New Negro Movement made room for greater social, cultural and political discussion and ways of thinking. But as the Wall Street Crash triggered the Great Depression, the Harlem Renaissance felt the bite of a everchanging world.

Blues for an Alabama Sky explores the fallout in 1930s New York through the eyes of four friends. They try to keep their artistic dreams alive, but when one of them, Angel, falls for an Alabama stranger, can the quartet stay together? Or will the realities of 1930s living take its toll?

Pearl Cleage’s Blues for an Alabama Sky premiered in 1995, and the play immediately spoke to the nation. An excerpt of Blues for an Alabama Sky was staged during the 1996 Olympics opening ceremony in Atlanta, showcasing the work on a global scale.

Fast forward to 2022, and an all-star cast will take part in Blues for an Alabama Sky. Samira Wiley plays Angel Allen, joined by Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo as Delia, Osy Ikhile as Leland, Sule Rimi as Sam, and Giles Terera as Guy. Lynette Linton directs.

Tickets to Blues for an Alabama Sky are available now. Book your Blues for an Alabama Sky tickets on London Theatre today.

Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a superb cast in a play that is funny, heartbreaking and compelling in all the right ways.

Don’t see it if you can’t sit through nearly 3 hours of quite slow theatre- regardless of how excellently written and performed it is.
