Black Pearl Sings
by Frank Higgins
Milwaukee Repertory Theater
January 2018 - March 2018
"Directed by Leda Hoffmann, the Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s production is a moving and thoughtful two-woman musical play with a pair of remarkable actors playing women poles apart but brought together by music."

"There is plenty in this Milwaukee Rep production to hope and rejoice in - not to mention timely take-aways. Black Pearl Sings! shines a light on the value of unlikely friendships - specifically, female friendships and women who build each other up in the face of unrelenting adversity."
