Anna Deavere Smith in Twilight: Los Angeles


"I'm a huge fan of one-person shows, and one of my most favorites was Anna Deavere Smith's electrifying Twilight: Los Angeles. The research she had done on all the players in the LA riots created a transcendent portrait of the human spirit. And her comedic and dramatic recreation of all of those characters was mind blowing. She made me love and care about everyone and realize that people, when doing insane things, really do believe they are doing something for a good reason."
