What is the role of a lifetime?
What is the role of a life?
This intelligent, intuitive, indomitable, large, black, American male actor explores Shakespeare’s Othello, race, and America… and not necessarily in that order.
“American Moor is not Mr. Cobb’s first play, but it is the one that is most timely, most truthful, and the one for which he is most suited to perform, for it is a vision of race in America with the entertainment industry as microcosm. And he is now able to reflect upon a lifetime in that industry where no one who was anything like him ever wrote the rules. American Moor is his song to the unheard, unseen other.” – Luna Stage official press release.
