A Huey P. Newton Story

A Huey P. Newton Story

In his brilliantly-imagined, Obie Award-winning show, Roger Guenveur Smith explores the life of the controversial Black Panther leader Huey P. Newton through a series of improvisations based on his own words and writings. Biography, satire, and socio-political commentary blend within a landscape of fantastic sound design to create a provocative, surreal and always surprising portrait of the complex times in which he lived.

An L.A. Theatre Works solo performance featuring Roger Guenveur Smith.

Original music by Marc Thompson.

Directed by Roger Guenveur Smith. Recorded before a live audience at the the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in February of 2000.
