Paul Robeson Quotes!


“The immensely likable Keith David plays Robeson…charming the audience with the humanizing wit of his delivery, as well as his voice, which approaches the resonance of Robeson’s own.”
- Margaret Gray, Los Angeles Times


“Splendid performance and singing…when David breaks out into a rendition of ‘Ol’ Man River,’ you’d swear you were again listening to that long-silenced, unique basso profundo.” (Byron J.) Smith’s musical accompaniment is flawless.” –Lovell Estell III, Stage Raw


"Paul Robeson was a titanic figure in America's cultural history and history in general. It requires a commanding presence to do justice to the physical and artistic power of Robeson...the cumulative effect of David's Herculean two-and-a-half hour monologue and Dean's profile is MAGNIFICENT!" "Kudos to Ebony Repertory Theatre for bringing this dramatic reminder of greatness to Los Angeles. As was the case with its memorable revival of A Raisin in the Sun in 2011, it's something that benefits the entire Los Angeles community, and is another reminder that the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center on Washington Blvd may be this city's best space to see a play." - Cristofer Gross,


"The production values here are high in quality, but minimal in terms of the scenic design (by Edward E. Haynes Jr.). It is the lighting (by Dan Weingarten) that provides the focus of this staging, effortlessly guiding our eyes from one scene to the next. Further, the costuming (by Wendell C. Carmichael) is formal but timeless tuxedo-wear, fitting the proceedings perfectly." - Ben Miles,
