Critical Response

Johnny Lee Davenport and Mauro Hantman each give fine performances in their small roles.”
—Randy Rice, Broadwayworld.com (February 6, 2009)

“Trinity’s production does not, of course, have the star power of the 2004 Broadway revival. . . . But it does feature local favorite Johnny Lee Davenport.”
—Louise Kennedy, Boston Globe (February 11, 2009)

“Bobo (Johnny Lee Davenport), plays Walter Lee’s friend, who brings the bad news that their other ‘friend’ split town with their savings. . . . Davenport [is] very affecting in [his] walk-on role.”
—Doug Norris, South County Independent (February 12, 2009)

“I could go on about the supporting cast that held their own marvelously . . . but that would take too long. . . . This is not one to miss. For some amazing performances that left this reviewer incredibly moved, please see this ‘Raisin.’”
