Zora Neale Hurston was a writer, anthropologist, voodoo priestess and overall Renaissance woman. Drawing inspiration from Hurston's personal letters, novelist Gabrielle Pina pieces together a provocative play about this extraordinary figure whose life was filled with artistic triumphs as well as abject poverty and self-doubt. Letters From Zora explores Hurston's controversial views on integration, segregation and social justice. Veteran actress Vanessa Bell Calloway plays the role of Zora, and Anita Dashiell-Sparks directs this multimedia production featuring live music composed by Ron McCurdy and archival images collected by Margie Labadie. Discover Hurston's prose, her distinctive group of friends and foes and her unique view of a jazz-age world. Learn More

As usual, the Pasadena Playhouse has given yet another great play. Our seats in the rear balcony was still great. The theater is small enough that even rear balcony seats are good. Parking is across the street and there are food venues all around the theater. There are also food trucks parked curbside.The play itself was well acted by all the actors. It had many stories within a story that was easy to follow. Each actor protrayed their character quite well and believable. Lighting, sound and music was very good. August Wilson wrote 10 of these plays. This is #3 of ten that I've seen. I look forward to seeing the other seven. This is yet another excellent play by Wilson, don't miss out! Enjoy!!
