Malik Yoba to Star Opposite Rubin-Vega in 'Beautiful' Play
Everything's Turning Into Beautiful, written by Rosenfeld (The Flatted Fifth) and featuring songs by Jimmie James, is "a musical story of two songwriters facing their forties and failure - and the possibility of new love," states the New Group's website. Keen Company artistic director Carl Forsman is set to direct.
Yoba's theatre credits include His Woman His Wife and What's on the Hearts of Men; he is also the founder of the Malik Yoba Theatre company, formed in 2004. Perhaps best known for his performance in the film Cool Runnings, he has also been featured on "New York Undercover," and other TV appearances include "Thief," "Girlfriends" and "Arrested Development."
