My seats were great. Attended the matinee and found a parking space in front of the theater. Dress is casual.

The play is one hour long so you can park on the street. So feed the meter!

Quotes & Highlights

Watch Smith perform an excerpt from Rodney King.

“Infusing the sensationalism with subtle compassion, Smith restores to King what King himself was always trying to wrestle back from the media … his simple humanity.” —Los Angeles Times

“After mesmerizing audiences with his one-man shows as Huey P. Newton and Frederick Douglass, Roger Guenveur Smith will inhabit on stage the life of Rodney King, whose beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 and subsequent acquittal of the officers involved led to the deadly 1992 Los Angeles riots and his own famous plea, “Can we all get along?” — The Washington Post
