Dobama’s ‘Sunset Baby’ rises to the occasion
To see a full review of this show, read Bob Abelman's review here
“Sunset Baby” is an unnerving, thought-provoking script which exposes the viewer to not only the black experience in this country, but forces them to think back to both the turbulent 1960s and the effect the political and societal problems of the day had on those who actively lived through those times. It is a well-conceived production worth seeing.
Sunset Baby is worth a trip to Lee Road, for Mary Francis Miller’s stunning performance, for a few clips of Nina Simone’s singing, and for a story that touches on the personal sacrifices that people make when they try to move the world in a different direction.
Dobama's intelligent production enhances the work of a savvy playwright who knows every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. No problems or causes in sight.
