It was amazing how a pianist and two singers were able to present this biography in such detail. The female voice was especially beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed this uplifting story of tremendous problems successfully overcome, of a mother's...continued

This is one of the best shows I've seen this year. Well acted by all actors but most of all Mr. Elijah Rock gives an outstanding performance in the role of Roland Hayes.
I had the honor of meeting Mr. Rock after the show and got his autograph and...continued

Voices were tremendous! Read about Roland Hayes on Wikipedia before you go. Go to hear the voices if for no other reason.

Don't miss Breath and Imagination. Period.

The cast is remarkable and focused. The lead Elijah Rock is STUPENDOUS and nuanced. This is a truly stellar performance both dramatially and musically, a likely career-maker. Watch for him around...continued

Excellent, excellet, excellent!! An excellent rating for each of the three performers. The total program was 90 minutes of delight. The voices and piano accompaniment were off the chart.

Loved it!

Wow, all three of the actors were amazing. They not only had beautiful voices but they flowed together from scene to scene wonderfully. My wife said it was the best play she has seen in a long time!

Parking was great, it was next to The Colony Theatre. Staff was very friendly and helpful. People attending Play were very nice. All seats were excellant. The play was great, I plan on seeing it again.

Talented cast of singing actors in a compelling story that sometimes sags in how it is told and simply staged. Sit in Center or Right section for best view.

The lead Elijah Rock, as Roland Hayes, has a strong voice, but his limited acting skills did not effectively set up the songs and the scene transitions had an uneven flow. Karan Kendrick, Roland's mother was the strength of the show and her...continued

Professional performance by all three actors, one of whom was also a talented pianist. The life of Roland Hayes is told in 90 unforgettable minutes. The Colony theatre has done themselves proud again!

I saw the preview, and I was really impressed. It did not play like a preview (with lots of little errors) and was a fully realized well done play. The play has three actors, and they were all excellent - especially the lead, who remains on the...continued

It took me a few minutes to get into it, but ended up really enjoying the play. The actors were all excellent. I had not ever heard of Roland Hayes so it was a learning experience too!
