Daniel Beaty as Paul Robeson in The Tallest Tree in the Forest
The Tallest Tree in the Forest
Legendary performer and political activist Paul Robeson is celebrated in song and story by Daniel Beaty (Emergency, The Public Theater) in this bravura solo pay, directed by Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project Cycle, 33 variations). Seamlessly incorporating photos, audio, and video footage, The Tallest Tree in the Forest captures Robeson's multifaceted history - from football heroics, to triumphs on Broadway and London's West End, to radical politics and McCarthy-era defiance. With unflagging energy and incisiveness -and performing a stunning rendition of "Ol' Man River"- Beaty sheds light on one of the 20th century's most dynamics lives.
