***RECOMMENDED*** “I lost my soul because I didn’t know its worth” laments the male protagonist in Raven Theatre’s production of “Hoodoo Love.” Written by Katori Hall and an off-Broadway hit from 2007, this drama with music tells the tale of an aspiring blues singer living in Depression-era Memphis and the great lengths that she will go to in order to achieve success as a performer but, more importantly, to ensnare the man that she loves and guarantee that he will settle down with her to raise a family. 3 AND 1/2 SPOTLIGHTS
