i am kloot
I wasn't expecting much from "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom "as I knew it had flopped on Broadway
even with Whoopi Goldberg...
So with it staring Antonio Fargas
..aka.."Huggy Bear "... in Manchester http://www.royalexchange.co.uk/new/play.asp?playid=193
I knew it wasn't going to be play of the year,
However I did not expect such a turgid non-event as this...
Although the acting was good..nothing happened ; no discernable plot , comment...except for platitudes and steriotypes.. or indeed action ..
Now ,I admit I feel asleep TWICE ..and left in the interval, so Im not the best reviewer, but my more patient friends , who saw it through , agreed with me.
We had a better time after, in an empty , cold pub.with a large DJ trying to get us to sing Abba...
