NYWIFT Member Lindsy M. Bissonnette is directing the upcoming play entitled The Rhythm/Da Blues, which will be playing at the 13th Street Repertory Theatre (50 W 13th St.), and is co-presented by The Gnome Haus.
Lena, the central character, grew up in a family of storytellers. When it was her turn to take the mic, she had plenty to say, but not enough courage to spit it. That's when her Auntie, Miss B. Darling, a transwoman and businessperson, steps in to teach Lena how to find the beat. Writer/performer E. E. Wade brings her own brand of southern charm and ferocious wit to this celebration of family, first loves, and #BlackGirlMagic.
The Rhythm/Da Blues performances are:
Thursday-Saturday, August 24-26 at 8:00 PM
Sunday, August 27 at 3:00 PM
Tickets are $18, or $10 for students and seniors, and may be purchased online.
