Hidden Gem

Surprised about the negative response/reviews, to this powerful performance. Roger Guenveur Smith delivers a harrowing and most passionate performance of the events surrounding the life, beating and aftermath of Rodney King.

It is raw. It is uncomfortable in it's emotion. But it's also a tour de force.

If you are interested in that era, those events, and the man himself, this is a must watch.

Powerful story, powerfully told

In this one-man show, Mr. Smith takes us through the saga of Rodney King--a story of a man subjected to enormous police brutality--captured on video--who received no justice. Smith pulls us right back into the early 90s, filled with racial tensions, and the divides between the police, white America, and the America of PoC. Through Smith's performance, we can feel it all--the terror, the anger, and the sadness. He holds up a mirror to us all, in which we stand in the harsh, unflinching light of truth. I write this as we are, once again, as a nation, embroiled in the failures of our justice system--making this story both of its time, and timeless.
