`Blues for an Alabama Sky' at Everyman

Pearl Cleage's "Blues for an Alabama Sky," a play set during the waning of the Harlem Renaissance, opens tomorrow at Everyman Theatre.

The action focuses on five characters - a showgirl (Deidra LaWan Starnes), a costume designer (Lance Williams), a social worker (Elauna Griffin), a doctor (Fred Strother) and a newcomer to New York (Jefferson A. Russell). Direction is by Jennifer Nelson, artistic director of Washington's African Continuum Theatre Company.

Show times at Everyman, 1727 N. Charles St., are 7: 30 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through April 15. Tickets are $15-$20, except tomorrow's opening, which is $25, and tonight's pay-what-you-can preview. For more information, call 410-752-2208.
