BWW Review: Tony Winner Trezanna Beverley Skillfully Channels Iconic Cabaret Star Mabel Mercer In MABEL MADNESS at Urban Stages
by Alix Cohen - Feb 25, 2016

Some years ago when Tony Award-winning actress (for For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf (Ntozake Shange) and playwright Trezanna Beverley's voice coach suggested she listen to Mabel Mercer, the artist had not heard of the nightclub and cabaret singing icon.

Her dream has been realized with Mabel Madness, a play with music that opened this week at Urban Stages and runs until March 20. (more...)
