Powerhouse in the making

Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Uncle Tom’s Cabin is now running Wed-Sun until Dec 12th at the Metropolitan Playhouse (220 E. 4th st. Btw Ave A & B).

“Alex Marshall-Brown, in the show’s most complex performance”

~New York Times

“Alex Marshall-Brown, tears into Topsy with explosive force!”

~BackStage

“Marshall-Brown’s Topsy is particularly thrilling: she shows us that this ‘wickedest critter’ is a scared child who has developed a small but effective set of defenses to cope with a horrifying existence.”

~NY Theatre

There is also a podcast interview of me and the director, Alex Roe, discussing the show on Episode #353 of nytheatrecast.com!

    I watched you perform this weekend and you did a great job with “topsy”. Keep up the good work and good luck.

    PS: And your right the audience was kind of quiet (in reference to your comment at the beginning of the play)

  2. Hey Alex,

    I saw the performance last weekend during a quick visit to New York from Michigan. I was definitely not a quiet voice but a boisterous laugher who couldn’t quite tone it down. It was amazing to have all those emotions in one performance. And I’ve been telling everybody about it since!

    You and each of the characters was fantastic. Thank you for bringing Topsy to life so strongly.

    My friend who came with me is a teacher and looking forward to sharing it with her students as well.

    Thanks!

    • So glad you’re enjoying the show!

      Thank you for the kind words Samori Sy.

      Sarah, I appreciate your willingness to share your mirth so whole-heartedly, rather than stifling it. A loud and boisterous laugh can certainly fuel a performance, so I must thank you for your contribution to that show as well!

      Thank you both for also getting the word out. Boosting the popularity of this show is the only way for this company and these artists to continue producing work of this calibre.
