'….aspects of the story come through more poignantly at TheaterWorks, without the movie-star distractions. This encounter should be small, with palpable sexual chemistry, which Mr. Mangan and Ms. Thomas display.
Anita Gates [New York Times]
Excellent performances … achieving better results
than the New York production.

The performers could not be more impressive. Mangan inhabits King. He humanizes the man. The brilliant orator was also a person with flaws and idiosyncrasies, like the rest of us. His breathing difficulty seems like an asthma attack. He has an eye for women. He is not totally secure unto himself. Camae likes King and she speaks about civil rights and its promise. She is not in awe of King, and Thomas’ performance is ever-affecting.
Fred Sokol [Talkin Broadway]
Both Jamil A.C. Mangan and Courtney Thomas give exciting and generous performances, and the direction, by Rob Ruggerio, is precise and beautiful.
