Best Overlooked Gem

Riff Raff, Arena Players

Despite billing itself as the oldest continuously operating African-American community theater in the country, Arena Players hasn’t been much on marketing. So, it’s easy to understand why so many people may have missed this production. It’s a pity though. Riff Raff, written by actor Laurence Fishburne, is a gritty look at the drug game and the lengths people go to to escape poverty. Arena’s cast handled the material deftly, creating an emotionally charged and deeply effecting production.
