The Department of Theatre and Dance at Texas State University will stage Virginia Grise's "blu" Feb. 6-9 in the PSH Foundation Studio Theatre.

Showtimes for the Black Box Production will be 7:30 p.m. Feb. 6-8, with a 2 p.m. matinee Feb. 9. 

Memory, history and culture collide with starlit rooftop dreams as Soledad and her partner, Hailstorm, redefine family on their own terms after the death of their eldest son in Iraq. Steeped in poetic realism and contemporary politics, “blu,” directed by Hollie Nanes, challenges audiences to imagine a time before war.

Admission is $17 for adults, $13 for children and $8 for Texas State students. 

Tickets are available by phone at (512) 245-6500 or online at

Parking is available in the Edward Gary Street Garage, 405 N. Edward Gary Street, for $8 at or at the box office window the night of the event.
