The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith is First Rate


Talented cast is showcased at GSP

Miche Braden gives a performance that is as legendary as the infamous entertainer she portrays in The Devils Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith at the George Street Playhouse.  Ms. Braden and this talented cast of actors/musicians have brought a first rate show to the GSP. Scott Trent on piano, Anthony Nelson on sax, and especially James Hankins on the bass. They really entertain our ears during the evening as well as help to set the stage for a fine evening of Bessie Smith’s blues music and her life’s story – with all it’s many heartaches and a few highlights.

The most important element in this show is the music.
