Review: Joe Morton Embodies Comedian and Activist Dick Gregory in TURN ME LOOSE Photo Review: Joe Morton Embodies Comedian and Activist Dick Gregory in TURN ME LOOSE
by Shari Barrett - Oct 22, 2017

TURN ME LOOSE explores the influential life of 1960s comic genius Dick Gregory, the first Black stand-up to make white audiences laugh at the absurdity of bigotry. The play reveals how the power of activism enticed Gregory from one of the most successful show business careers of the postwar era into a life of sacrifice and danger alongside Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers and other Civil Rights leaders. And I can tell you, when Joe Morton describes the tragic murder of Evans, his anger and tears seem to flow from his soul.
