About This Show

The Fountain Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of a timely and timeless theatrical journey. J. Alphonse Nicholson (Broadway's Tony award-winning A Soldier's Play; co-star P-Valley on Starz; Netflix’s They Cloned Tyrone) reprises his off-Broadway, tour-de-force star turn as five versions of an African American everyman who travels through time in different incarnations, including a 19th-century minstrel, a faith healer, an FBI informant, a struggling actor and an out-of-work mortgage broker. In each life, Abel is guided, distracted, helped or hindered by a handful of characters with whom his destiny is forever intertwined. We meet each new iteration of Abel Green on a train, which changes in appearance in accordance with each time period and serves as a link between dimensions.
