📺 In Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, tensions & temperatures escalate throughout the course of a recording session in 1920s Chicago. A band of musicians await the arrival of the Mother of the Blues, Ma Rainey. As Rainey clashes with her manager over control of her music, trumpeter Levee spurs his fellow musicians into revealing truths that will change all their lives. Led by stupendous performances from @ViolaDavis & Chadwick Boseman (sadly, his final role), alongside vibrant cinematography, music and costumes – this August Wilson adaptation is magnificent.
