WOW! What a talented young man. He has the charisma that few performers have. This is the top play I have ever attended, deeper and more moving than any performance at the Mark Taper or any show on Broadway.

It is a power packed, nonstop performance which is mind blowing for a 1 man show. The hour that I was there has impacted my life with a new understanding of the modern day youth experience. What an emotional ride. Being a strong, alpha male, the emotions I felt were deep and conviction. It takes a lot to stir me from moments of laughter to tears. I would highly recommend this to ALL.... full review

His takes on some of the important issues in the african-american community and its juxtaposition with historical content make this an engaging production. I was invested in this play from beginning to end.... full review

The show was fabulous! Provocative and very accessible. I was on an emotional roller coaster, going from highly amused, to angry, to sad in a matter of seconds. Extremely engaging. Everyone should see this. NOW!... full review
