Robert Cumming: Review - Good Blues Tonight at Danville
Stars Miss Kentucky 1915, Clark Janell Davis. (Wikipedia: Clark Janell Davis)
Click on headline for complete review
Danville's legendary Pioneer Playhouse 67th year this summer brings another great play written by artistic director Robby Henson.
The World Premier "Good Blues Tonight" starts July 12-July 23, starring Miss Kentucky Clark Janell Davis , a Lexington native, the youngest ever to compete for Miss America 2015. A Vocal Performance major at UK, she studies under renowned music director Everett McCorvey.
This original play is a "Kentucky Voices" original event. In the words of artistic director Robby Henson, son of the late Pioneer Playhouse founder Eben Henson...'I've always been a fan of "Chitlin' Circuit rock n' roll" when ground-breaking blues artists like BB King, Etta James, Little Richard, Chuck Berry toured southern juke joints developing a raw, rowdy blues style."
Local Danville historian Michael "Fly" Hughes helped Henson's historical music research while combining Danville's vibrant Second Street pageantry in the late 50's. This unique play offers a glimpse into the sights, sounds and soul of a corner of Danville in the 50's --Robert Cumming
