One Night In Miami

6TH OCTOBER - 3RD DECEMBER 2016
Design by Rob Jones

All Scene All Props had another chance to work with designer Rob Jones this year on ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI for the Donmar Warehouse this Autumn. 

The world would come to know him as Muhammad Ali, but on 25th February 1964, a 22-year old Cassius Clay celebrated his world heavyweight title not by hitting the town, but in a hotel room with his three closest friends: activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and American football star Jim Brown.

To the outside world, they were American icons. But in that hotel room, here were four men who understood each other and their moment in history in a way that no one else could. With the Civil Rights movement stirring outside, and the melody of 'A Change is Gonna Come' hanging in the air, these men would emerge from that room ready to define a new world.

Kwame Kwei-Armah returns to the UK to direct Kemp Powers' fictional account of a real night, taking us to the heart of a pivotal moment in the history of a nation. Lighting by Oliver Fenwick, Sound by John Leonard and Video by Duncan McLean.

ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI with run at the Donmar Warehouse from Thursday 6th October to Saturday 3rd December 2016.

Reviews:

The Telegraph: 4 stars ****
'A hard-hitting Ali drama that falls just short of a knockout.'

The Guardian: 4 stars ****
'A crucible moment for black America. Fine performances carry Kemp Powers's dramatisation of a momentous meeting between Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown and Sam Cooke.' 

The Independent: 4 stars ****
'Sope Dirisu beautifully captures both the mischievous charm and full-of-beans cockiness of Cassius Clay.'

The Times: 4 stars ****
'Cassius Clay spars verbally with Malcolm X and Sam Cooke in an electrifying production that packs one hell of a punch.'

Time Out: 4 stars ****

WhatsOnStage: 4 stars ****

TheArtsDesk: 4 stars ****
