This was a wonderfully uplifting one-man show detailing the life of Paul Robeson. At the end I could barely believe that three hours had gone by in a flash. If you have any chance do not miss this play.

Unbelievable. I knew I would enjoy the subject matter. Had no idea how powerful a play this would be. The quality of the play was matched by the quality of the performance.

Strongly recommend this to anyone. Partcularly if you like Paul Robson....continued

A wonderfully poignant presentation of a major personality in U.S. 20th Century history that includes details not heard anywhere else.
