Thunder Knocking on the Door

Written By Keith Glover | WORDS AND MUSIC BY Keb' Mo' AND Anderson Edwards

DIRECTED BY Tevyn Washington

Upcoming June 16-August 6


Tickets from $30



This bluesy show is an intoxicating musical fable filled with humor, heart, and the extraordinary music of three-time Grammy Award winner Keb’ Mo’. In a small Alabama town, a mysterious blues guitar-playing stranger arrives at the door of the Dupree family, bringing a challenge for the offspring of his late rival. The stranger’s bargain pits family legacy against a tempting future. But what started as a deal with the devil turns into a love story for the ages. Part family reckoning, part epic love, and all blues, Thunder Knocking on the Door brings soul to Stages.

  • Wednesday - Thursday, 7:30pm
  • Friday, 8:00pm
  • Sunday, 2:30pm


  • 2 hours with an intermission
