A Nite at the Dew Drop Inn
Conceived and Directed by James Foster Jr.
Recreating the “hole in the wall, through the woods on a gravel road, moonshine still in the back” juke joint experience, A Nite at the Dew Drop Inn, conceived and directed by James Foster, Jr., offers low-down blues, hot piano, lively vocals, and a tribute to the “Queen of the Blues,” Miss Dinah Washington.
“Providing a respite from the blues inflections, Torres and Stephens breathe life into a classic gag routine by Miller and Lyles, a once-eminent vaudeville team.”

“As for the women, the Clark sisters showed us, Nell Carter, and Two Tons of Fun’s “It’s raining men, hallelujah” that big girls just wanna have fun, too. So, Yvette Mason and Kimberly Spencer-McLeod belt out, bump and grind with the best of them.”
