I thought Cassel's performance was immaculate, virtuosic--very well moved and very well spoken. He was completely in charge of it, deftly supported by admirably minimal production elements--great soundtrack, well operated. Seems to me the show, as is, would work well on any size stage and would please a significant percentage of serious theatre-goers.

A MUST SEE!!
CASSEL MILES IS JOSIAH HENSON This creative play, relying on the superb acting of Cassel Miles, his dancing (forgot how I loved the sound of good tap dancing), movement and incredible voice work, makes it easy to begin to feel that you do know who Henson was and what motivated him. You should see this play! You will want to find out more!
Cassel Miles stars in Josiah Henson: From Slave to Saviour, one of 16 productions being staged at this year's Storefront Fringe Festival.
“I think it’s a great showcase for talent,”
Doyle said.“The quality of shows is
very, very high.
It’s the same quality of shows, but with
a little less of the really out there.”
