La Mama Experimental Theatre Club presents this solo performance art piece about Rose Waits, a Blues singer from Buffalo.
A Solo-Performance Art/Experimental Play With Music about Rose Waits, a woman from Buffalo who could have ruled the world… If they had let her. Mama Rose is part magic, part southern belle, part ghetto fabulous Zena warrior and part of all of our shared human experiences. Playwright/performer Richard E. Waits has crafted an exploration of the search of self through myth, magic and the Blues. He looks for salvation from an over-the-top mother, whose rollicking, barrel-house exploits stand-in for a generation of women who ushered black boys into manhood.
