Reel for Arthur (A.R. The Songwriter) Richardson

This is exerpts from some of my work. Aint Mis Behavin broke a 30 year theater attendance record that still stand in the South Bend Theater District (smile) I was also nominated for best supporting actor in this production. Also clips from the West Coast Premire of John DeJohngs "Do Lord Remember Me" "L.A. Weekly" Next time you hear some guy bitching about how there’s no good theater in L.A., hogtie him, toss him into your car and drive straight to the Raven Playhouse for Wilson Bell’s staging of Do Lord Remember Me; that ought to shut him up. James de Jongh’s historical musical consists of the authentic oral histories of former slaves, woven together with Negro spirituals. The cast is composed of five actors who play multiple parts. There are no extraneous actors in the cast, and the set and lighting reflect that same minimalism. Aside from the rare, well-placed flash of red, lighting designer Christopher Singleton refrains from fancy effects. James Esposito’s set consists of only three chairs and a box. All this economy allows for the stories to take center stage. I was wishing that Arthur Alonzo Richardson, as Slave, would never leave the stage. His ability to inhabit each of his characters is incomparable, and his soulful performance is tempered by touches of playfulness, even in the darkest scenes. With such heavy subject matter, it’s amazing that this production is so much fun. Despite the immeasurable pain these ex-slaves endured, the final, prevailing sentiment is not bitter, but grateful, that “God done spared a few o’ us to tell da tale.” Chromolume Theatre Company .Also the pilot pitch "Closure" which was produced by "The Woods" Trent Cameron.
