Guiding Light’s Kim Brockington in Angela’s Mixtape
Viewers of Guiding Light will know her best as Felecia Boudreau, Springfield’s much needed, if seldom used, therapist and the matriarch of the Boudreau family, but Kim Brockington has a lengthy and admirable record as a theater performer. Lucky audiences in New York will be able to catch her at the New Georges and Hip-Hop Theater Festival when she appears in “Angel’s Mixtape” by Eisa Davis. Directed by Liesl Tommy, the play stars Brockington alongside Denise Burse, Eisa Davis, Ayesha Ngaujah and Linda Powell.
Time jumps between the 70s, 80s, and 90s with the ease of songs fading into each other as each track and memory switches to the next. Combining music and memory, the play tells the tale of a girl’s radical upbringing on the dividing line between Oakland and Berkeley, California in a family which includes her aunt, professor and activist Angela Davis.
Watch this video to catch a glimpse of what audience members have in store for them.
