Theatre Professor’s Play Noted in NY Times
In the article “Theater to Stream,” the “New York Times” recommends the play “Let It Shine; A Visit with Fannie Lou Hamer,” by Professor Frank Kuhn (Department of Theatre and Music Studies).
In the March 17, 2021, New York Times roundup of theatre recommended for streaming, Elisabeth Vincentelli notes:
Frank Kuhn’s play, “Let It Shine: A Visit with Fannie Lou Hamer,” about the Mississippi voting rights activist, is straightforward and educational–and that is its strength. Sharon Miles stars in this production from the New Stage Theatre in Jackson, Miss., and it’s easy to see how Hamer paved the way for the likes of Stacey Abrams in Georgia.
