Guenveur Smith returns to the stage with his signature solo show, Frederick Douglass Now.  Frederick Douglass Now is a monologue inspired by the life and work of the self-liberated abolitionist and pioneering feminist Frederick Douglass. Smith has edited Douglass’ class 19th Century texts into a jazz-infused narrative, bookended by original writing of Beckettian force to produce the kind of edgy stylistic mash-up of which vital contemporary theater is made. Smith has been inspired by the pioneering abolitionist and feminist to combine Douglass’ classic texts with original narrative to create and perform what the Los Angeles Times calls “a personal benchmark for this remarkable artist.”
