Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

β€œthey don’t care nothing about me... they only care about my voice.” whew truly a moment from Viola Davis.Β 

yeah Chadwick Boseman πŸ’”Β 

he was so transformative and complex and powerful in this. you can tell he dug deep with this character especially in the monologue scenes and was truly versatile, it’s like he stopped time every time he spoke. incredibly emotional. this manages to make you feel the day in the life of a musician in the 1920’s but also the exploitation of black artists at the time. a must see for the performances.
