Review: Alric Davis' BASHFUL, AND THE NOIZE Creates an Emotional Journey at Sankofa C Photo Review: Alric Davis' BASHFUL, AND THE NOIZE Creates an Emotional Journey at Sankofa Collective
by Armando Urdiales - Sep 14, 2022

Where to begin to explain Alric Davis' semi-autobiographical play Bashful, and the Noize. Equal parts Michael R. Jackson's A Strange Loop, Pasek and Paul's Dear Evan Hansen, and Simon Stephens A Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, Davis' play is an amalgamation of storylines that are equal parts celebratory of black American life, but also is a play that needs some improvement. While I know this has been a 9 year journey for young Davis, this play has the guts to one day truly be outstanding. There is some polishing that can be done to have the play truly excel and eventually become as iconic and discussed as James Ijames Fat Ham, or Branden Jacobs-Jenkins Gloria.
