by Nancy Grossman - Apr 28, 2017

New Repertory Theatre takes us for a ride in the wayback machine for the Boston-area premiere of one of Lydia Diamond's earliest plays.

Obehi Janice, Alejandro Simoes, and Maurice Emmanuel Parent make the ride worthwhile.

BWW REVIEW: AN OCTOROON Takes Race Relations down the Rabbit Hole
by Jan Nargi - Feb 24, 2016

Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins has assaulted the fourth wall and countless racial stereotypes in his funny and audacious new play AN OCTOROON. Adapted from an 1859 melodrama titled "The Octoroon" by Irish playwright Dion Boucicault, Jenkins' piece weaves a biting contemporary narrative within Boucicault's stock storytelling to turn familiar antebellum tropes into jarring racial commentaries.
