Quotes & Highlights
“Roger Guenveur Smith believes in the interconnectedness of history: that our lives, big and small, are enmeshed in the great tangle of events, big and small.”—Rachel Saltz, The New York Times
_The Watts Towers Project _was a high point of Solomania! at the Douglas in 2006. Smith returns with an equally powerful and poetic work based on the true story of baseball legends Juan Marichal and John Roseboro and the infamous 1965 day when Marichal turned and hit Roseboro in the head with his bat. Smith witnessed the event on television and passionately presents it as part of a greater story that encompasses the Watts riots, Catholicism, the notions of marriage,family and, ultimately, redemption and forgiveness.
