Roger G. Smith and Spike Lee again brilliantly collaborate for this one man show that brings to life the charismatic Huey P. Newton and gives a unique glimpse into this complex individual. Smith gives a high energy, high impact performance with his mannerisms and speech to pull the viewer into the mind of Newton, whom Smith eerily resembles.
This role is certainly a breakout. Smith captures the audience and never lets go, inviting his audience to participate in sing-a-longs and prompting response with successions of "huh?".
One wonders where Smith has been hiding his talent. I for one hope to see more performances from the spotlight from Smith.
