Audio Play Version of Dominique Morisseau’s Paradise Blue Debuts March 25

The Williamstown Theatre Festival and Audible co-production stars Simone Missick, Kristolyn Lloyd, André Holland, Keith Randolph Smith, and Blair Underwood.

The latest audio play from Williamstown Theatre Festival’s Audible season drops March 25 with Dominique Morisseau’s Paradise Blue. The production stars André Holland, Kristolyn Lloyd, Simone Missick, Keith Randolph Smith, and 2020 Tony nominee Blair Underwood.

Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson directs the play, with assistant director Bianca LaVerne Jones, sound designer Darron West, and composers Kenny Rampton and Bill Sims Jr. rounding out the creative team.

Paradise Blue first premiered at Williamstown Theatre Festival in 2015 and a Signature Theatre Off-Broadway 2018 production, also directed by Santiago-Hudson, starred Lloyd, Missick, and Smith. The drama looks at a community facing changes in Detroit’s gentrifying Blackbottom neighborhood in 1949.
