Ma Rainey Scores Three Stars in Edinburgh

Hamilton’s student production of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival received a three star rating in Edinburgh Festival Magazine. The cast performed August Wilson's Ma Rainey for Hamilton’s annual Martin Luther King Day celebration in January, and took the show to Edinburgh on Aug. 11-22. It was directed by Associate Professor of Theatre Mark Cryer.

Edinburgh reviewer Tom Hackett wrote “It’s a well-directed and earnestly performed attempt at a very challenging piece of work. If it doesn’t come to the boil as thrillingly as it should, it’s still worth seeing for the real insight it provides into a time and culture that’s too often caricatured.”
