Intrepid Theatre presents Tayo Aluko: Call Mr Robeson
Wednesday, February 20th, 2013
Intrepid Theatre presents Tayo Aluko (UK) in “Call Mr Robeson” the rollercoaster journey through actor, singer and pioneer civil rights activist Paul Robeson’s remarkable life. This ‘”simply-told but immensely powerful’ play (The Scotsman) highlights how Robeson’s radical activism caused him to be disowned and disremembered, even by the leaders and descendants of the civil rights movement and ‘helps to restore him to our collective memory, with great grace.’ 4 Stars, The Scotsman
With much fiery oratory and Robeson’s famous songs, such as Ol’ Man River, Tayo Aluko revives one of the 20th Century’s most impressive but overlooked figures in this powerful, compelling performance, which was seen at New York’s Carnegie Hall in February 2012.
“A stunning piece of musical theatre…. high quality drama, first class singing”
OUTSTANDING SHOW! 5 Stars – Fringe Review, Edinburgh Fringe, 2010
“Aluko does a fine job … First-rate” … an admirable introduction to a great pioneering performer” 4 Stars – The Guardian
