"A dazzling showcase for Chadwick Boseman.
Viola Davis Registers Ma Rainey as her own creation.
Ma Rainey is both shunned and revered, a dichotomy that Viola Davis - one of the most lauded interpreters of Wilson's work - illustrates with the potent fury and ache. There is cinematic quality to 'Ma Rainey': its searching, hungry camerawork; its lush hues; its movie-star turns.

Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman and Michael Potts each groove on August Wilson's robust language."
