what an incredible portrayal of PAUL ROBESON... the audience was treated to a spell binding intimate and authentic portrayal of this amazing man.

This show should be on a MAIN STAGE for all to see....MARK TAPER ETC.

This show told me much more about the man, his upbringing, marriage, and political life than I could have imagined. The actor was superb and very entertaining. The venue was small and intimate. I even had a few tears flow from my eyes. A must see...continued

I have seen many Productions of Paul Roberson's life and this has to be the all-time worst. First it was 20 minutes late starting and then the actor was terrible. He continually flubbed his lines, at one point he took off his shirt and was on the...continued

It started 10 mins. late but it was worth the wait. It was amazing. The actor transformed himself and made us believe in every character. The end was a little abrupt. Paul Robeson and his wife going back to America on a boat, the end. I would...continued

Excellent. Well done. My first one-person show and am amaze of the realism in the portrayal of many characters. Also, very educational for African-American history.

The playwright did excellent in his portrayal of Paul Robeson, but the performance was way too long. Three hours! A little less theatrics would have cut down the time. But overall, K thought it was very food. I learned a lot about Mr. Robeson and...continued

The Santa Monica Playhouse was a terrific find but this play was not very good. The story of Paul Robeson is very interesting and I’ll probably do some research to learn more about him. Unfortunately the actor yelled most of the time and the...continued

Stogie Kenyatta was masterful. I was very touched, and would love to see his One-Man-Show about Paul Robeson again. I have highly recommended it to family & friends. It was stunning synchronicity to be told about Goldstar last Wednesday, check...continued
