The Los Angeles Times calls this slice-of-life dramedy “engaging and thought-provoking.” It imagines what occurred the night of Cassius Clay’s historic win over heavyweight champ Sonny Liston. Declining a glamorous party, Clay celebrates with his friends: activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and football player Jim Brown. Each man argues his vision for what it means to be black in 1964, culminated in an early morning announcement from Clay that shocked the world. Runs through April 19 in The Space Theatre.
