Black Pearl Sings
Sacramento, CA 95814
Who “preserves” gritty Americana music like “No More Auction Block”—the black convict whose forebears have sustained the song since slavery or a white Ivy League folklorist, “field recording” it for posterity? This two-actress Depression-era drama explores that conundrum. Crystal Fox’s soulful, gutsy solo vocals are outstanding. W 12:30 & 6:30pm; Th, F 8pm; Sa 2 & 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 5/9. $15-$36. Sacramento Theatre Company, 1419 H St.; (916) 443-6722; www.sactheatre.org.
