A one man play about Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American to sit on the Supreme Court, Thurgood spans Marshall’s impressive career as a lawyer, arguing such landmark cases as Brown v. Board of Education.
|“Davenport has the kind of ineffable stage presence that can’t be adequately described but needs to be experienced…. [A] passionate portrayal… the actor thoroughly inhabits the character of Marshall.”
The Boston Globe
“As you watch this piece, and you understand what Thurgood Marshall did and what he experienced, you can’t help but tie it to our times today.”
“Johnny Lee Davenport delivers a commanding, compelling portrait of the first African-American to serve as a justice on the United States Supreme Court… Marshall, as we see him here, isn’t a faded relic, but rather a respected elder whose patter, soft and inviting as it is, barely conceals a sharp and brilliant streak of humor… not to mention a still white-hot streak of passion for social justice.”
“A tour de force.”
“A must see!”
“A powerful reminder that one man can make a difference.”
“One of the great performances of the year.”
