Misery Loves Company
Danesha Simon's play, Misery Loves Company, a gospel musical stars among others, Suga T. The live band is great as are the cast, especially the wonderful solos by Simon, Suga T and others. Considering the heaviness of the topic: child prostitution and trafficking, there is room for humor.
Misery Luvs Company is at the Black Rep, 3201 Adeline Street in Berkeley. 5:00 p.m. this evening, Sunday, June 7. The setting is a doctor's office--psychiatrist's office. Black mental and spiritual health is an underlying theme in this play. Misery also lends importance to the role mothers and other parents play in a child's life, even those children who think they are "grown."
