January 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Audience Reviews for White Nights, Black Paradise
“I thought I knew the story of Jim Jones and the People’s Temple: a group of crazy people following an evil leader. I was wrong. Sikivu Hutchinson’s characters showed me the real reasons why this tragedy occurred. Her characters are raw, real, revealing, and compelling. For me, the power of her characters overcame the usual opening night glitches. So I recommend that everyone who (like me before I saw this play) thinks they know why these people did what they did—should see this play. I believe Dr. Hutchinson’s play should be made into a full Broadway production.”
“I see so many similarities with some of the megachurches that exist today within our community. Hopefully, a play like this could even help prevent something like this from ever happening again.”
“Excellent look into the social and political conditions that helped to create the Jonestown massacre. While I thought I knew the history of Jonestown, I found that I had many misconceptions. The writer manages to portray the complicated, complex inner workings of African American women in this country against the backdrop of a historic tragedy. The actors made their characters come alive and made me care about them. Rarely have I seen this quality of writing or acting in a small production. I am looking forward to seeing this play again with friends and family”
