Description

by Roger Guenveur Smith April 21-23, 2017

In this riveting performance, Smith unravels the myth of “the first reality TV star.” Rodney King tells the story of a flawed, good-hearted everyman - from his harsh entry into the national spotlight to a lonely death at the bottom of his swimming pool. Twenty-five years after King’s memorable plea to the nation, Smith asks us once again, “Can we all just get along?”

A hit at the Public Theater (NYC) and Seattle Rep. “Sinuous, complicated, deeply moving” – New York Times
