Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom | Saturday, March 21


The Roaring Twenties have made “Mother of the Blues” Ma Rainey a star, attracting the young and ambitious trumpeter Levee to her band. But a routine recording session in Chicago turns ugly when Levee’s ambitions collide with the larger-than-life personalities of Ma, her entourage and the white producers looking to make money off their talents. Wilson’s searing drama features music that defined a decade and looks at the messy intersection of art and industry.
