Personality: The Lloyd Price Musical is headed to Chicago, with a run set to begin May 31, 2023, at the Studebaker Theatre. Featuring the songs of Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Lloyd Price, the musical has a book by B. Jeffrey Madoff, based on conversations with Price himself.
The Chicago run follows a world premiere at People's Light in Malvern, Pennsylvania, earlier this year. Broadway alum Saint Aubyn led the production as Price; casting for the Chicago bow is to be announced.
Price grew up in New Orleans before launching a music career in 1952 and becoming a success in pre-Civil Rights America. Bringing together Black and white listeners through his music, the show features an ensemble of singers and dancers singing some of his most well-known hits, like "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," "Stagger Lee," and "Personality."
Ticket information is to be announced.
