Ken and Susie weren’t going to use their tickets to the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood to see Paradise Blue and offered them to me. Oh yes, thank you very much! Marsha came along and we had dinner at Violet, a very nice place two blocks from the theater.
From the website: “It’s 1949 in Detroit…And trumpet-playing club owner Blue has a tough decision to make. Should he sell his jazz joint as gentrification is banging on the door? The house band is desperate to stay, Blue’s demons are tempting him to leave, and the arrival of a seductive stranger turns everything upside down.”
