Weekly Margin 2020, W1: A Soldier's Play, Slava's Snowshow, The Inheritance, Parts One and Two

1/02/20: A Soldier's Play
What: Roundabout presents Charles Fuller's 1982 Pulitzer prize winning play, about the investigation of a murder on a military base of a black sergeant in the American South during the second world war.
And? A wonderful cast, from the television stars to the Broadway debuts, ably directed and staged by Kenny Leon. The play itself is a compelling examination of the racial tensions and nuances of what it meant to be the "right" kind of black man at the time in order to earn respect from white colleagues, and a sobering reminder that the more things change, the more things stay the same.

1/03/20: Slava's Snowshow
A lovely revisit before the run concluded, and this one had Slava himself stepping in for part of Yellow's track (namely, the opening rope sequence, and the second act), as well as the cutest child Green in the world.

1/05/20: The Inheritance, Parts One and Two
