Role Description

Ma Rainey: (Supporting) carries herself in "a royal fashion" but her manner is simple and direct. Takes no nonsense from anyone. Has a tough quality. She is the "Mother of the Blues" and knows it. Described in the text as a short, big woman--actors need not match this physicality, but size is definitely a plus. Must sing the blues.
