RACE by David Mamet Performs to Sold-Out Crowds at The Heather Theatre
The cast of RACE at The Heather Theatre lets their talent do the talking and surpasses expectations, achieving sold-out ticket sales its first weekend. Andrew Meacham, Performing Arts Critic for the Tampa Bay Times, writes a stellar review of the cast's dress rehearsal, which drew desirable attention not only in Tampa Bay but in theatrical circles in the North Eastern United States. Meacham praises The Heather as, "one of the Tampa Bay area's best kept secrets."
Upon the conclusion of their second performance on Saturday, the cast is interviewed by 88.5 FM's The Vibe at the WMNF studios. The interview can be found on the "Listen On Demand" widget - 7/15 airing, 2nd half of Part 1 & Part 2: click here. RACE at The Heather Theatre features Darren Constantine, Vincenzo Hinckley, Pierce Lackey, and Sharell Nichole Williams. The performance is directed by Ward Smith. The cast's individual credits include roles on Prime-time television, film, and professional theater.
With scalpel-edged intelligence, RACE is an examination of cultural conscience and paranoia; unafraid to raise painful questions while dispensing prickly ideas and provocative dialogue amid steady suspense.
