Goodman Theatre’s “Pullman Porter Blues” Open Now!

Web_Animations_Headers_Template.indd

This rollicking, music-fueled trip back in time takes us into the luxurious Pullman trains of the 1930s, where the hidden lives of African American porters emerge to take center stage and classic Blues favorites—including “Sweet Home Chicago”—come to life.

It’s June of 1937, and the Panama Limited Pullman Train is speeding from Chicago to New Orleans on the night of the Joe Louis/James Braddock world heavyweight championship. Three generations of Sykes men—African American train porters—wrestle with ghosts of the past and dreams for the future as they eagerly await word of the Brown Bomber’s victory. Set to timeless Blues tunes performed by a live, on-stage band, Pullman Porter Blues is a spirited, music-infused ride you won’t soon forget!

Pullman Porter Blues runs Sept.14 - Oct. 20 in the Albert Theatre. Tickets range from $25-$86 (subject to change) and are on sale now. Purchase tickets by phone at 312.443.3800, box office located at 170 N. Dearborn, or visit GoodmanTheatre.org/Pullman.
