Me and the Devil

A World Premiere Digital Play
By Steve H. Broadnax III and Charles Dumas
Directed by Steve H. Broadnax III


Extended through February 27, 2022

"First-class in every way... All told, ME AND THE DEVIL is one of the finest examples of what is increasingly called 'hybrid theater' ever to come my way via streaming. I cannot possibly recommend it too strongly.' –Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

Have you ever wanted something so much that you'd make a deal with the Devil? Legend has it that Robert Leroy Johnson struck a deal with the Devil to be the best blues musician who ever lived. In this dramatic play with music, Johnson aims to break that deal as his spirit calls his family, friends, and lovers to bear witness to his superlative talent and fearlessness.

This world premiere digital play with music was filmed at St. Stephen's Theater in Center City Philadelphia in summer 2021, with strict adherence to all CDC, state, and local health and safety guidelines.
