We enjoyed the content material about Ali and his life history. What we did not feel was up to par were: 1) the staging - awkward silences, where between scenes, rock music was played - which had nothing to do with the play - it would have been better to have video scenes/pictures of Ali and/or his fight history 2) the play started late, 3) the actor needed a microphone to project his voice - we found it a little hard to hear and we were in the front of the back section.
We enjoyed the actor's imitations of other people - excellent Howard Cosell! ....
Quotes & Highlights
- "Cook delivers a formidable performance as Ali ... Cook's gift of mimicry does equal justice to his turns as sportscaster Howard Cosell, promoter Don King, opponents Joe Frazier and others." --<em>LA Weekly</em>
This show is performed without an intermission.
