It's 1927 and Ma Rainey, the Mother of the Blues, is getting ready to record the jazz songs that she sings like no one else.

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, a gripping drama from Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright August Wilson, gives us a look at a time when even the most legendary singer of her day had to fight for every scrap of respect she could get. Starring renowned actor and recording artist Jevetta Steele as Ma Rainey. Contains mature themes and language. More on ATC's 2010-2011 season.

The most recent of these events created by the Janos Culinary Team is the annual dinner for the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum where guests will enjoy an exquisite meal while mingling with Desert Museum raptors and animals.
Wilder’s support of the region’s resources began nearly two decades ago with his first event held to raise funds for Native Seed Search, an organization which finds, cultivates and preserves indigenous crops and wild species of the Southwest.
Known for his pioneering work in Southwestern cuisine using French techniques and locally grown produce Wilder’s dinners are always an evening of exquisite tastes and delicious surprises. Wilder creates each aspect of the meal to highlight the bounty of native foods from the Sonoran Desert region.
It is important to support organizations that nourish and preserve our environment, our heritage and our culture, Wilder explained in his long-term commitment preserving native species and educating the public about the Desert Southwest. These fundraisers bring attention to the beauty and richness of the desert and to those who work to maintain it, he said.
Wilder’s culinary odyssey has brought the chef to national prominence as a trendsetter and originator in Southwest Cuisine. In 1990, he wrote the landmark cookbook, Janos: Recipes and Tales from a Southwest Restaurant. Wilder and his restaurants have received regional, national and international awards and accolades.
The Desert Museum is the nation’s leading outdoor living museum, featuring more than 300 species of native wildlife and 1,300 varieties of desert plants. The museum is located at 2021 N. Kinney Rd. Call (520) 883-2702 or visit www.desertmuseum.org for more information.
