Spotlight of the Week: Samuel Wright
Samuel Wright is a Liberian American up & coming ACTOR!! He graduated from THe National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in Washington D.C. Wright Debuted his acting skills in the much anticipated theater play "An Adult Evening with Shel Silverstein" which recieved rave reviews in its opening week.
Silverstein’s poetry for children may verge on “edgy,” but this series of short plays is where the master wordsmith cuts loose and lets rip with – shall we say – less “decent” humor. Director Colin Grube does a fine job of tying the vignettes together through seamless transitions, and with his design team, creates a number of clever pictures with minimal scenery. Arturo Tolentino and Samantha Merrick deftly handle Silverstein’s wittiest wordplay in the sketch “One Tennis Shoe.” Dena Colvin, Julie Harris and Samuel Wright are a delight as they twist a twisted rhyme in “Buy One, Get One Free.” Wright himself scores the funniest performance of the evening with deadpan honesty as “The Best Daddy.” You can find the rest of this Review in The MD Theater Guide..
