Description: People Productions will present "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," by August Wilson, the author of "Fences." The performances will run April 13-15, 20-23, 2017. Ma Rainey, "the Mother of the Blues," and her band come to Chicago's Paramount Records in December 1927 to record some of the songs she has made famous all over the South. By the time the tracks are laid down, one man is dead, and the audience has a record of what it's like to be black in the America of the day -- or maybe today. Tickets can be reserved at peopleproductions.org, or purchased at the door.
