CAROLINE, OR CHANGE: ★★★★ FROM THE SUNDAY EXPRESS

'Tony Kushner, author of Slavs! Thinking About The Longstanding Problems Of Virtue and Happiness And Henry Box Brown, Or The Mirror Of Slavery, as well of course as the much garlanded Angels In America, might seem an unlikely candidate to write a musical.'

'But, in 2002, with composer, Jeanine Tesori, he scored a great success with Caroline, Or Change.'

'Loosely based on Kushner’s own Louisiana childhood, it tells of the relationship between eight-year-old Noah, the only son of an observant Jewish family, and their African-American maid, Caroline.'

'Michael Longhurst’s production is elegant, sharp and excellently cast. Aaron Gelkoff is remarkably assured as Noah and Lauren Ward painfully funny as his needy stepmother.'

'Me’sha Bryan and Ako Mitchell are richly paired as the compassionate washing machine and diabolic dryer, while Abiona Omonua is powerfully defiant as Emmie.'

'Above all, Sharon D. Clarke is superb as Caroline, winning our hearts with her dignity and glorious voice.'
