'The Whipping Man' by Matthew Lopez As assistant director, Baltimore Center Stage, 2011 I served as Kwame Kwei-Armah's assistant director. Responsibilities included daily check ins with director for 'outside eye' notes, and input and reinforcement for actors around Hebrew language and Jewish culture.
"The play's art seems to be concentrated in its setup, which entwines blacks and Jews in a way we've seldom seen... Watching Kwei-Armah's brooding, coiled production unfold, you get a sense of a ripping epic melodrama inside this tidy play." (Washington Post)
