The Ensemble Theatre to Present Jeff Stetson's THE MEETING, 1/25-2/23
The Ensemble Theatre celebrates Black History Month with The Meeting by Jeff Stetson, and directed by Shirley Marks Whitmore, co-producer and director of the annual Dancin' in the Street...Motown & More Revue at Miller Outdoor Theatre.
Fascinating and dramatically compelling, this eloquent play depicts the supposed meeting of two of the most important men of modern times; Malcolm X and DR. Martin Luther King, Jr. Differing in their philosophies, but alike in their mutual respect, the two men debate their varying approaches to the same grave social problems, both prepared to die for their beliefs but neither aware of how soon their assassins' bullets would await them.
Featured cast members include: Jason Carmichael (Martin Luther King, Jr.) last seen as "Jimmy Lunsford" in Knock Me A Kiss and "Deacon" in Sanctified; Mirron Willis (Malcolm X), who most recently performed as "Henry Brown" in Race, and made his debut on The Ensemble Theatre stage as Countee Cullen" in Knock Me A Kiss; and Derrick Brent II (Rashad) who ast played "Bobby Green" in The Nacirema Society.
Previews are set for Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 8:00 p.m., Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. and Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. The show runs January 30 -- February 23, 2014.
