ILLINOIS BOY BLUES
Writer/Performer: Khalil Muhammad
Part historical, part stand-up, part drama, "Illinois Boy Blues" is the story of an abandoned boy turned bluesman, Romaine Richard. He recalls his journey in life as a foster child, musician, sex addict, and life-long resident of Illinois. We see that Romaine has all the qualities of a seasoned entertainer, but what's preventing him from reaching his fullest potential? No one can tell it better than the man that knows him best, Rev. Raydius. This fallen star's unraveling story will shine a light on racism, prostitution, fame, and a little boy's infatuation with the Land of Lincoln.

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
NO REFUNDS will be granted.
