It was a pairing so strange it could only be true. Fetch Clay, Make Man tells the story of the remarkable relationship between Muhammad Ali and Stepin Fetchit. Set mostly in 1965, Ali -- who until his recent membership into the Nation of Islam was known as Cassius Clay -- is winning both bouts in the boxing ring and arguments about the ability and dignity of African Americans. Meanwhile, the faded Fetchit represents an older, uglier era. Having once made millions playing racist stereotypes on the silver screen in the '20s, '30s and '40s, the truly talented actor is now broke and half-forgotten. Yet, in the days leading up to one of Ali's most anticipated matchups, the prizefighter and the movie star form an unlikely and revealing friendship. Learn More

Awesome, high-energy performance that keeps you at the edge of your seat the whole entire show! Incredibly talented performers dance and make music using every day items. There is some audience participation and the "comedic" element was the best! It's a must see. You will walk away in awe. It's family friendly (with a couple of light innuendos), so bring the kids! Loved it!!!
