Returning to their roles from Houston are Bowman Wright (Marin Theatre Company's Topdog/Underdog) as DR. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Drama Desk Award nominee Joaquina Kalukango (Hall's Hurt Village at Signature Theatre in New York) as Camae. The Houston Chronicle declared that Wright "beautifully inhabits Dr. King with a shining sense of humanity that serves as an example to us all," while Kalukango's performance was praised by Broadway World as "radiant and brilliant, showcasing a talent for striking and stunning performances that will be worth following."
