*”A Heated Discussion,” presented by The Robey Theatre, is one of those plays that must be experienced. A conversation imagined becomes very real for every audience member. Imagine witnessing a faceoff between Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcom X, Ida B. Wells, Nina Simone, Tupac, Bob Marley, Lorraine Hansberry, Zora Neal Hurston, James Baldwin, Frances Cress Welsing and Richard Pryor. Soon after the show starts your mind is trapped into an unfolding of thoughts, ideas and perspectives that are mentally titillating, politically charged and spiritually elevating.
