REVIEW: Mother/daughter drama with a vibrating spin: France-Luce Benson's 'The Talk'
By Zahra Marie
INTERVIEW for Keith Price's Curtain Call: Award wining playwright, France-Luce Benson, brings the Haitian/Hatian American experience to the stage in her piece, RISEN FROM THE DOUGH. As one of the winners, she sits with me to talk about being diligent in expressing diversity in theater, primarily through the Haitian American lens. She is fabulous.
PRAISE: "In my twenty plus years in the theater I've worked with hundreds of actors and some have been very talented, some very professional, creative, personable, and even likable. Rarely, does one possess all of these qualities. France-Luce is that rare individual that embodies all of these things and so much more! Directing her one-woman show holds one of the fondest memories I have in this crazy business. If I had it all to do again? It would be my pleasure!"
