Rated 4.0

He was “the Man,” the greatest blues guitarist of his time, and he disappeared—presumed dead—14 years ago. Now, an English rock star (Harry Sadler) has come looking for him. The mystery of why “the Man” (played to perfection by James Wheatley)—and his daughter, Della (Tisha Hill-Smith) both want to keep out of sight drives this dramatic examination of talent, commitment, history, politics and what it is that makes the blues so real. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 7/17. $8-$15. Celebration Arts, 4469 D Street; (916) 455-2787; www.celebrationarts.net.
