Theatre is Easy
August 18th, 2016

"Labrone portrays Carmichael and several other characters to illustrate the injustice of our fundamentally racist society; thanks to the beautiful work of director Jennifer Knight, each character is distinct, hallowing, and necessary...The play features moments that are 'squirm-in-your-seat' uncomfortable, balanced by moments of heartwarming beauty, all of which combine to create an experience that I will be thinking about for a long, long time to come."

New York Theater
August 17th, 2016

"One can count it as a missed opportunity that a show with the title ‘Power! Stokely Carmichael’ tells us so little about the life of Stokely Carmichael…Labrone energetically captures Carmichael’s polemical flourishes…He is a technically adept performer…But, in a 70-minute play about Stokely Carmichael, shouldn’t there be less bubbly (fewer anonymous characters and extraneous entertainment) and more…Stokely Carmichael – the breadth and evolution of his thought, the details of his life?"
