Based on the music by Harold Arlen and the lyrics of Johnny Mercer, Blues in the Night is about to enjoy a revival after its last run at the Piccadilly Theatre in 1987 where it ran for an incredible ten months as well as being nominated for an Olivier award. The revue originally was staged by Sheldon Epps and Gregory Hines in March 1980, before moving to Broadway in 1982.

Their individual stories being told through soul-filled songs by blues and jazz icons Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen and many more.
