The Irish Repertory Theatre Presents Emperor Jones
The Davis family gathers for a holiday celebration in their native Tulsa, Oklahoma, but all goes awry when the family matriarch insists they join a lawsuit seeking reparations for the Tulsa Race Riots that devastated their family.
"Angel Moore as Camae is equally sparkling as she stands toe to toe with him landing verbal jab after verbal jab until the entire audience is awash with laughter that changes to deep respect in the blink of an eye."
"Angel Moore’s delivery was excellent in the role of Camae. In the beginning of the drama, Moore played the role with the naïveté and innocence of a young woman, yet as the conversation develops, Moore acted with increased self-assuredness and forthrightness as her real identity was revealed. This contrast between perceived weakness and strength of the two Camaes is established clearly by Moore."
"After her initial scene, the audience sits up straighter in anticipation at Angel Moore’s every arrival on stage. Her Cassandra is a beautiful housecleaner gifted with second sight and a propensity to talk about Greek mythology and interfere in family business."
"Cassandra (Angel Moore) has to be the juciest role of them all, ripe and ready for creativity as she goes about her household chores, cleaning up the family's messes along the way. This includes picking up Sonia's smashed coffee cups, casting spells, channeling predictions and even using a voodoo doll on Masha to try to get her to change her mind about selling the house."
