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).

“…there’s subtle craft in Keeley’s take on Laura’s fragility, and her performance grows weightier and more complex as the story culminates in a candle-lit kiss with her oblivious gentleman caller.” —Entertainment Weekly
“The Glass Menagerie_… at the Mark Taper Forum in a production directed by Gordon Edelstein, shouldn’t be missed.“ —_Los Angeles Times
Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Gordon Edelstein
One of the greatest American plays finds new light in this critically lauded re-imagining of the classic story of a fragile family hanging its hopes on the arrival of a “gentleman caller.”
Two-time Tony Award-winner Judith Ivey features in director Gordon Edelstein’s sparkling new production that makes this Menagerie as fresh and vital and sadly magical as its original 1944 debut.
