I'm sorry there are only 5 stars to award - this show was beyond my expectations. I felt I knew Zora Neale Hurston intimately after seeing Vanessa Bell Calloway portray her (and Vanessa could not have been more perfect in the role). It was simply riveting, evoking experiences from Ms. Hurston's life and making them real for the audience. The musicians were excellent as well. I didn't want it to end, I wanted to hear more of her life stories.
