Role Description

Ma Rainey: (Lead) carries herself in "a royal fashion" but her manner is simple and direct; takes no nonsense from anyone; has a tough but maternal quality; described in the text as a short, big woman--actors need not match this physicality, but she's not Diana Ross; actor must sing.
