Miche Braden stars as Bessie Smith, the legendary “Empress of the Blues,” who blazed the trail for a century of performers from Aretha Franklin to Adele. Mixing classics like “Need a Little Sugar In My Bowl” and “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” with stories from her rebellious, astonishing, and painful life, The Devil’s Music is an intoxicating musical journey into a transcendent and tortured soul. Approximate run time is 90 minutes with no intermission.
This show is best enjoyed by ages 16 and up.
