Perhaps no play could better memorialize the exciting grand opening of Benson Theatre. In 20th Century Blues Playwright Susan Miller successfully writes characters who veer directly into the depths of women and time, but she also takes direct jabs at the forces of ageism, racism and tragedy. For seven dates this month, performers will bring 20th Century Blues to life on stage with heart. And the 100-year-old building with a vaudeville past, too, will start anew.
The October 31st performance will be ASL interpreted. The October 29th and 30th performances will feature a community talkback after the show, with participation from community partners Inclusive Communities, Home Instead, Douglas County Health Department, and the Anti-Defamation League.
