$10 - $75
Following up on his well-received memoir and jazz musical show Now I'm Fine, Ahamefule J. Oluo is back with a new show about his mother, Susan. Oluo's Nigerian father left the United States and left Oluo's Midwestern mother with a couple of kids to raise. He investigates that part of his past, and tells the story of his travels to Nigeria, the home his father left the family for. For Now I'm Fine, the New York Times praised Oluo for his "ingratiatingly self-deprecating manner," his facility with several storytelling modes, and his seemingly effortless skill as a conductor and musician. Expect all that and a little more polish in this new piece. by Rich Smith
