The Lower Bottom Playaz, Inc From Gem to Radio Golf 2015 promo reel

I saw King Hedley II last night (8-29-2015)! KH II is the 9th of the 10 plays in August Wilson’s American Century Cycle (Pittsburgh Cycle if you’re from the east coast smile emoticon The play is superb, the cast did a stellar performance to their largest audience yet. Not only that, this reporter believes that like a fine wine, the performances will only get better through the next 5 shows! The direction is inspired, and I’m going back to see it again (twice) so that hopefully I can get even better photos than the ones I took last night, so as to do a more in depth review! And the cast received a standing ovation, as was their due, because they put everything out there on the stage, connecting with the audience from beginning to finish and beyond! The Playaz should be on Broadway in NY with this! Not only that, stay tooned for the December 2015 performance of the last play in the American Cycle series and be prepared to congratulate Oakland’s own Lower Bottom Playaz on being the only theatre company in history to perform August Wilson’s entire American Cycle series! So GO SEE THIS PLAY, everyone! Encourage your friends as well. It deserves no less than a packed house! The theatre seats approximately 100 people, and there will be a line, so don’t miss out! There is a 2 pm matinee today, an 8 pm showing on First Friday, two performances the following Saturday, September 5, 2015 @ (2pm & 8pm) and the finale matinee @ 2pm on Sunday, September 6th! The Flight Deck @ 1540 Broadway in Oakland is showcasing this must see work of art. BRAV@ Lower Bottom Playaz, BRAVA Dr. Nzinga! You rock! Malaika H Kambon SF Bay View newspaper
