Thought-provoking, Intense, Great acting, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if You want to see the inspiration behind the Lone Ranger. A Black Marshall named Bass Reeves was the ranger but due to racism was ignored.

Don't see it if You are not interested in Black history. Choose to believe distorted history. Don’t want to see good acting by Black actors.

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting

See it if Well-written,well-acted,&well-staged w grt lighting&sound designs. The play, abt the 1st Afr-Am lawman,born into slavery,is set in 1888 OK.

Don't see it if To make the story more appealing,1or 2 women should b added 2 the cast. Major concern:took 80yrs x a Black cowboy to hit B'way or Off B'way. Read more

See it if Well acted, interesting play, tho less a bio of Bass, than a story abt repercussions of slavery, betrayal, & the West. Great use of sound.

Don't see it if Got slightly preachy at the end. Still, this is a must-see in my book.

Riveting, Refreshing, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if This small budget play set in 1888, with African-American historical significance has tremendous potential. The plot was very interesting.

Don't see it if If you prefer a larger budget play or learning about the plight of African-Americans during post-reconstruction, then skip this one.
