Blue Directed By Phylicia Rashad To Play New York's Historic Apollo Theatre This Spring

Prior to working for Applause, I worked in the box office for the Roundabout Theatre Company, where I had the opportunity to see each and every one of their shows during their season. One of those shows was a Blue, by Charles Randolph Wright.

That production, which had it's Off- Broadway premier at the Gramercy Theatre in 2001, starred Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad, and Tony Award nominee Michael McElroy. Cut too almost nineteen years later, and the show is set to return to New York once again, only this time with Mrs. Rashad at the helm.

Now when the show was first announced in 2019, the play was scheduled to play at a Broadway theatre during the 2019-2020 season. Wouldn't you know it, but all of the venues are booked up. Well you know what they say? "When one door closes, another door opens."

The show, which is set to star Tony Award winner Leslie Uggams and Emmy Award winner Lynn Whitfield, is set to play a 16-week engagement beginning on April 27. Oh and did I mention that we are selling tickets for it? Well we are. Get your tickets to see Blue at the Apollo Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
