‘Till’ Brings a Tragedy to Life

July 26, 2019

"In a smart and inventive production, beautifully cast and sensitively directed by N.J. Agwuna at the Pershing Square Signature Center, this musical achieves something difficult and rare. It blows the dust of history off a tragedy and brings a martyr to exuberant, mischievous, complicated life. Emmett’s not a saint here, nor is he the corpse in the infamous photo that his mother wanted the world to see. He’s a regular kid — a little cocky, a little dreamy. And like Mamie, we wish the world for him.

God. With kick-ass pop-rock tunes and corporate attire, it's a sinfully good time that you can't help but leave feeling #blessed.
