My Life at the Theater-Black and Blue

This was the thrilling blues review of 1990 with Ruth Brown, Linda Hopkins, Carrie Smith and a bunch of great hoofers including the young Savion Glover. It played at the Minskoff Theater and it was a total treat.

The production was conceived and directed by Claudio Segovia and Hector Orezzoli. The original production debuted in Paris.

I always liked Ruth Brown. I remember she toured with Bonnie Raitt in the late 90's.

We took my parents to see it on their visit to NY in October of 1989. As David mentioned, the great Ruth Brown toured with Bonnie Raitt more than once.
