This new play tells the heroic story of African American solider Pvt. Wayne Miner, who valiantly volunteered to take artillery to the front line during WWI when fellow soldiers refused. More…
Wayne Miner lived up to the Buffalo Soldier creed of "Deeds Not Words." Breaking the chains of fear and death and guided by his mother's spirit, he took his charge in a heroic effort to make America and the world free.
See it if Some good acting esp Daryl Wyatt. A story that had to be told. Interesting info provided.. With some publicity the story can move on.
Don't see it if Some weak acting.. Theater not easy to find in the building. (Maybe we were too early for the posted signs?) The set can use more work.
See it if You are interested in the challenges faced by African American soldiers in WWI, enjoy learning about history in plays based on real events
Don't see it if You need a fully polished production, are not interested in African American history, prefer light plots, are not open to facing some truths
See it if you like historical characters & interested in the lives of non-white soldiers in the USA. Like to see up and coming actors at their onset.
Don't see it if you want a fully polished performance, set or costumes! Like more refined performances.
See it if you want to see an important and often overlooked story of African American military service
Don't see it if you're not interested in historical drama.
Also This production had a very "amateurish" feel to it
See it if There is an interesting and important premise in this show...the stories of soldiers of color have been underrepresented in American history
Don't see it if but this show wasn't the venue for it. While I appreciate the effort, this show wasn't well written or acted. But support artists of color!
See it if You want to see an important story, told by a mostly African American cast.
Don't see it if You want to see any talent on stage. Everything falls short: the acting, sets, lighting, script and costumes.
See it if you nothing about the historic of African Americans serving in the armed forces in the twentieth century or the Buffalo Soldiers.
Don't see it if even in a workshop you need a well written show that you think can be rescued with some tweaking, rewriting and refinefinement.
