Beaty is a good performer, but the writing is weak. The characters show no progression resulting in show in which one loses interest half way through because there is nothing new or unexpected.

What a fantastic performance by Daniel Beaty. Transitioning from one character to the next was seamless. I was taken in throughout the performance. Can't wait for his next piece.

Daniel Beaty is a joy to watch. The script needs some minor work, some segments go on too long. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable 90 minutes of theatre.

Description

Written and Performed by Daniel Beaty

Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright

Playing six African-American men at different stages of their lives as well as the people who love them, Beaty’s newest performance piece unites this multitude of characters through an extraordinary event. Through the Night takes on universal themes and makes them personal, highlighting the tragedy, beauty and humor within all of us. It’s about family; it’s about addiction; it’s about love. It’s about time – can you make it through the night?
