Average: 4.5 (4 votes)

Bursting with poetic storytelling and 14 songs, including “Ol’ Man River,” and “Happy Days Are Here Again,”The Tallest Tree in the Forest combines the talents of award-winning playwright/actor Daniel Beaty (Emergence-See!) with acclaimed director, Moisés Kaufman (33 Variations, The Laramie Project). Discover the true story of Paul Robeson, hailed as the ‘best-known black man in the world’ for his incomparable singing and acting, brought low by accusations of disloyalty to America. Beaty brings “his signature wit, grit and piercing lyricism” (New York Times) to more than 20 characters, asking the question, how does a man remain an artist when his soul cries out to be an activist?
