MILWAUKEE REP PRESENTS BESSIE SMITH
Broadway Show Blues comes to Milwaukee

Milwaukee Repertory Theater, at 108 E. Wells Street in Milwaukee has an upcoming production that's sure to please blues lovers from every background. The Devil's Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith is a fantastic show featuring Zonya Love, who is a phenomenal vocalist who was last on the Milwaukee Rep stage in The Color Purple after a run on Broadway.

It recounts the life of Bessie Smith, one of the Blues greatest vocalists. Laughter and bawdiness come together to deliver an entertaining and unforgettable evening as "The Empress of the Blues," Bessie Smith, gives an after-hours show and recounts a life as large and outrageous as her talent.

"A foot-stompin', hand- clappin' 90 minutes of pure entertainment!"
