This musical revue will have you ‘tapping your feet, clapping your hands and leaving the theater humming and smiling. Starting at the root of the river the first act launches off with ‘musical numbers ranging from African chants and spirituals to Delta and Chicago blues, with plenty of stops along the dusty roads, river banks, broken country hearts and juke joints in between, is more than a musical feast. This sizzling revue of the blues and blues infused songs that changed the way the world hears the human heartbeat will take Miami by a storm.’
