Hi: This is my brief review of The Inheritance. Love the Play! - Jeff , Bookseller @ East End Books Ptown

This is a brilliant Play! I saw Part I & II in London at the Noel Coward Theatre in November 2018 and on Broadway November 2019.  Remarkable acting from a cast that moves you to tears, laughter, reflection, and back to tears! Read this Play Script as soon as possible!

Matthew Lopez has written a brilliant play that made me feel recognized & valued as a gay man, and part of not only a great LGBTQ family but also a larger community of straight allies and friends.
It also takes a look at those we’ve lost and the way they remain in our hearts. A brilliant theatrical performance! It was difficult to sleep the night I saw Part I & II - it’s so much to think about.

  

I loved the traces of Howard’s End interspersed throughout the Play and E.M. Forster appearing among the cast of Characters, as they’re trying to “speak their truth.” This is one of those Plays you’ll be re-reading.

The Inheritance has so much to say and I was thrilled by the talk, display and pure love of books and literature that you see throughout this Play! The renewed call to fight for what’s great about our Country as we face some of our darkest times - made me freshly enthused and ready to
Fight to defend our rights.

 

And what a powerful look at the many people we lost to AIDS and the beautiful remembrance of the people and trails that were blazed, along with the links between generations of gay men from the past to the present - all tied together to the responsibilities we have to one another - as a community at large. There’s so much to think about and reflect on. This is one of those performances that you want to get on a plane and fly “across the pond” to see!

Listen to Hanifs' Podcast: OBJECT OF SOUND Full episodes of Object Of Sound can be found in the Sonos archive on Mixcloud.

"A Little Devil in America is an urgent project that unravels all modes and methods of black performance, in this moment when black performers are coming to terms with their value, reception, and immense impact on America. With sharp insight, humor, and heart, Abdurraqib examines how black performance happens in specific moments in time and space--midcentury Paris, the moon, or a cramped living room in Columbus, Ohio. At the outset of this project, Abdurraqib became fascinated with clips of black minstrel entertainers like William Henry Lane, better known as Master Juba. Knowing there was something more complicated and deep-seated in the history and legacy of minstrelsy, Abdurraqib uncovered questions and tensions that help to reveal how black performance pervades all areas of American society. Abdurraqib's prose is entrancing and fluid as he leads us along the links in his remarkable trains of thought. A Little Devil in America considers, critques, and praises performance in music, sports, writing, comedy, grief, games, and love"--
