National Pastime Theater Presents: Doo Lister's Blues
(CHICAGO-IL) The National Pastime Theater, one of Chicago's most innovative and provocative theater companies, will present the world premiere of Doo Lister's Blues, Terry Abrahamson's powerful story of the turbulent 1960s as seen through the eyes of a black Chicago barber.
A story of race, records and revolution, Doo Lister's Blues takes over the stage at The National Pastime Theater October 1 through November 28. The message is the medium...and the medium is the music; DuWayne "Doo" Lister exercises his right to free speech through his music, despite threats from the FBI. Go for the beat- stay for the story- leave with history's realities gripping your gut.
Terry Abrahamson has written for Oprah Winfrey, John Lee Hooker, Joan Jett, Clarence Clemons, George Thorogood and won a Grammy for "Bus Driver," one of three songs he penned with Muddy Waters. His book of original Chicago Blues Photos, "In the Belly of the Blues," is in the permanent collections of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, MS.
Performances for Doo Lister's Blues are Thursday and Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 3pm and 8pm and Sunday at 3pm from October 1 to November 28, 2010. There is no Saturday matinee opening weekend October 2nd, but there is a Sunday matinee opening weekend October 3rd. There is no performance Thanksgiving Day November 25th.
