Moisés Kaufman (33 Variations, The Laramie Project) directs Obie Award-winning writer-performer Daniel Beaty in this solo show spotlighting the life and work of legendary singer, actor and activist Paul Robeson. It's the amazing true story of the Columbia Law School graduate and early NFL player, who gained notoriety in London by starring in Show Boat and Othello, and recording deep-voiced renditions of spirituals, like his famed "Ol' Man River." But he was also known as an outspoken civil-rights and social-justice activist who became a target of the McCarthy hearings. Buoyed by a live musical combo, The Tallest Tree in the Forest mixes poetic storytelling with 14 songs, including "Happy Days Are Here Again," and finds Beaty portraying more than 20 characters, with "signature wit, grit and piercing lyricism" (The New York Times).

First act takes place in the 50's/60's and second act takes place in 2009 in the same house. The writing and acting are superb! It's says profound things about race in America. It is hilarious and heartwarming at the same time. Don't miss it!
