Comments and Reviews about ‘Yellowman’
"Yellowman is by far the best production that we have seen at TAG. The acting was amazing and the entire production was incredibly moving. Thank you for producing such an incredible play." from Cindy Teal
"Amazing performance in Yellowman, Wendy! I'm in awe. I laughed, I cried (a lot), and I'm still processing this. Incredibly powerful play with such a talented two-person team of actors. I've never seen anything like this - so raw, real, and intimate. Wow.... thank you both for that transformative experience." from a friend of Wendy Pearson's
PLEASE! - from Jim Aina
CURTIS DUNCAN AND WENDY PEARSON CONDUCT A MASTER CLASS IN ACTING AND MAKES EACH AUDIENCE MEMBER FEEL LIKE THEY WERE TALKING ONLY TO THEM! THEY SET YOU UP, TEAR YOU DOWN, THEN REPEAT IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN! AND YOU ARE SWEPT AWAY WITH THEM FROM SOUTH CAROLINA TO NEW YORK AND BACK. YOU WILL LAUGH, CRY, HATE, REMINISCE...ON A ROLLER COASTER RIDE OF EMOTIONS. BUT IN THE END YOU WILL BE THANKFUL YOU GOT TO SEE...HOPE! - from Allan Okubo
"YELLOWMAN spans rifts over color, sex and hate"
"Wendy Pearson entirely inhabits the role Orlandersmith played in the original off-broadway production in 2002, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Eugene is played with energy and charm by Curtis Duncan."
- excerpt of the review by Mindy Pennybacker at The Star Advertiser
"In this and many other ways, under the bold, yet sensitive direction of Derrick Brown, "Yellowman" shows how members of stigmatized minority groups internalize their predjudiced hatred with which they're treated by the white majority, applying it to themselves and peers." - excerpt of the review by Mindy Pennybacker at The Star Advertiser
