There are no reservations about the performances. Jamil A.C. Mangan as Dr. King and Felicia Curry as Camae are superb. Mangan’s rolling basso tones and vocal cadences evoke the great orator. Ms. Curry has an even showier role and she makes the most of it – preening, flirty, profane, prophetic, warm. She is a gem.
Once again, the set designers work miracles on the small stage at the Norris Center. There were some inexplicable lighting effects here and there, but overall the look of the piece is just right.
