“Sugar Ray” by Laurence Holder, performed by Reginald L. Wilson, directed by Luther D. Wells will be presented January 6 to 23 by Twenty Four Bond Arts Center in association with Faith Steps Productions at Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street. It’s an evening in which famed boxer Sugar Ray Robinson revisits his career and legacy in a biographical solo show.
Playwright Laurence Holder has been prominent since the seventies, when his “When the Chickens Came Home to Roost” featured Denzel Washington in his first incarnation as Malcolm X and “Zohra,” featuring Phylicia Rashad, was presented by New Federal Theatre and earned seven AUDELCO Awards. His later plays include “Monk ‘n Bud,” “M: The Mandela Saga,” “Ruby and Pearl” and “Red Channels.” Information/Tickets: www.genefrankeltheatre.com
