This was certainly a very powerful and dynamically acted show. Mr. Beaty slips from one character to another with amazing fluidity and speed, so fast that you have to be on your toes to keep up! It was a real tour-de-force performance with a good balance of humor, pathos and meaning. It covered so many aspects affecting all of us, not just the black community, today. Bravo. Well worth going.
We didnt know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised by this performance. Daniel Beaty is an insightful and talented man -- with a whole neighborhood of compelling men and a few women inside of him! His portrayal was almost effortless. He became each of his characters and it never felt strained. We were completely drawn into his storytelling and the 90 mins flew by. I will keep an eye out for his future works and wish him the very best of luck.
Daniel Beaty amazingly takes you on a journey through a community at odds with itself. He wonderfully becomes each of the different characters with ease and precision. His portrayal is so real you feel that you know the characters. You start to recognize them even before he starts to speak. It is a great story with a nice message. I?d highly recommend this show.
