A couple of our bloggers attending opening night of the Broadway tour of A SOLDIER'S PLAY, presented by Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in the intimate space of The Fitzgerald Theater. Check out their thoughts about this powerful drama, and get your tickets here for one of the 5 remaining performances.
"Thanks to the Ordway for bringing us this powerful and important piece, and for staging it at the Fitz, a more intimate space for a story like this, that might have gotten lost in a larger space like the Ordway's main theater. An excellent cast lead by Tony nominee Norm Lewis brings out all of the nuance in this layered script."
"It’s a celebrated drama, that explores race in the Armed Services in the early 1940s, it’s also a whodunnit. More importantly, it’s a reminder that no matter how far we think we’ve come as a society, too much remains the same."
