Show Info

Composed by Allan Harris
Book by Allan & Pat Harris
Directed by Regge Life

With Allan Harris, Taylor Elise Jackson, Brooke Sterling, and Jeffery Lewis

The unsettled West of the 1860s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a runaway slave, who escapes to Texas to become one of America's first Black Cowboys. This compelling tale of freedom integrates fiction with historical fact, and each song presents a different page in this complicated chapter of American History.

The "smooth-voiced and charismatic" (The New York Times) renowned jazz composer, musician, and singer Allan Harris returns to 59E59 to star as Blue.
