What I liked

Different levels of artistic value: poetry, dance, rap and visuals.

What I didn't like

The theatres are so close; therefore, when you want to cheer and get extremely excited after the show, you can’t because there’s another play being viewed next door.

My overall impression

Tameka Bob’s eclectic solo show about her journey in life and the parallels of Dr. Maya Angelou includes stunning artistic levels for the audience. There’s literally never a dull moment. Bob was able to take us on a visual walk down memory lane framed with Angelou’s words as we were sprinkled with pirouettes. The fascinating thing about “The Maya in Me” is that it touches on culture and character, multiple levels of each. Therefore, this solo show can entertain the mildest audience member to the sauciest! This theatrical experience entails sorrow, laughter, pain, love, disgust, anguish, hope and liberation via dance, poetry, rap and a script full of life…anyone’s life. You see, the amazing thing about “The Maya in Me” is that it represents so many people at different stages in their life. Someone so extraordinary like Dr. Maya Angelou can be found in us all. And that’s a beautiful and refreshing awakening.
