Bessie Smith was a powerhouse in her day, earning her the title Empress of the Blues. She recorded with Louis Armstrong and toured in her own railroad car. And tonight, she’s centre stage in all her bawdy, boozy and bewitching glory. The Devil’s Music sizzles with Bessie’s famous songs, including “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” “St. Louis Blues,” “Baby Doll” and “Tain’t Nobody’s Bizness If I Do.” Miche Braden (Mammy from Gone With the Wind) returns to Royal MTC as the hot and hungry momma with the bad luck soul.
