WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bursting with soulful music and poetic storytelling, The Tallest Tree in the Forest combines the theatrical talents of award-winning artist Daniel Beaty (Emergence-See!) with acclaimed director Moisés Kaufman (33 Variations, The Laramie Project). Discover the true story of Paul Robeson, hailed as the 'best known black man in the world' for his incomparable singing and acting, brought low by accusations of disloyalty to America. Backed by a live band, Beaty brings "his signature wit, grit and piercing lyricism" (New York Times) to more than 20 characters, asking the question, how does a man remain an artist when his soul cries out to be an activist?
