In Variety's review of the play, Marilyn Stasio wrote:
"It's hard to take the eyes of Washington's Kendra, whose anxiety seems to have taken over its entire body. She knows that even a sweet, well-behaved child can find problems in this world, and as a black woman, she knows that life is never easy for a young black man, no matter what his background is. Washington's face, we can almost hear her thoughts as she seems worst. "
Washington resumed the CAA, Washington Square Films and Gretchen Rush lawyer. Leon is repped by CAA and lawyer Dorna J. Taylor. Jordan resumed by ICM Partners and Schachter Entertainment. Pasquale resumed the UTA and Brookside Artist Management.
