Moisés Kaufman (33 Variations, The Laramie Project) directs award-winning artist Daniel Beaty (Emergence-See!) in the role of singer, actor and activist Paul Robeson, often referred to as the "best-known black man in the world" because of his talent, but also because he was blacklisted for his criticism of the U.S. government during the McCarthy era. The Tallest Tree in the Forest mixes poetic storytelling with 14 songs, including "Ol' Man River" and "Happy Days Are Here Again." According to The New York Times, Beaty brings "his signature wit, grit and piercing lyricism" to more than 20 characters and focuses on the dilemma of how one man balances being an artist and activist.

About the Ticket Supplier: Arena Stage
Arena Stage today stands as a flagship American theater. Arena Stage was one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States, as well as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. It was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway, the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain, and the first to receive a Tony Award. Taking a leadership role in extending theater's horizons, Arena Stage has implemented groundbreaking policies and programs, promoting diversity in all aspects of theater, from theatergoing to production.
The Arena Stage legacy of world-class productions includes vast epics, charged dramas, rousing musicals, and probing profiles. From the monumental to the developmental, Arena Stage has helped build the canon of American theater. While they produce American classics, Arena Stage premieres new American plays and supported works in progress. They've nurtured artistic growth and engaged the community, broadening and intensifying the theatrical experience for one and all. And yet, in spite of it all, in their second half-century they see themselves as more fresh, restless and dynamic than ever.
