Geffen Playhouse presents Paradise Blue, a noir-inspired drama written by Tony Award-nominated Dominique Morisseau.
Paradise Blue takes place in “1949 in Detroit, and trumpet-playing club owner Blue has a tough decision to make. Should he sell his jazz joint as gentrification is banging on the door? The house band is desperate to stay, Blue’s demons are tempting him to leave, and the arrival of a seductive stranger turns everything upside down,” as described by a Geffen Playhouse spokesperson.
