Birdland Blue, a two-act play, offers a fictionalized riff on a sticky, warm night in the life of a legendary musician, Miles Davis. It’s summer 1959. The place: Birdland, the famed New York City jazz club. Possessed by the incompatible goals of both creating innovative music and living the life of the rich and famous, Miles comes under great pressure: (1) a nightclub owner doesn’t want to pay him what he’s worth; (2) the police threaten his livelihood; (3) key members of his great sextet (including Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane) are rebelling or threatening to quit the band; and (4) a beautiful writer shows up to tilt his balance. Wrestling with his personal demons, will Miles make it through the night unscathed?
