[Okwui Okpokwasili's stunning one-woman theater show, Bronx Gothic, is a piece of performance art that must be seen to be believed. Fusing song, dance, drama, and comedy all in the service of telling the autobiographical tale of two young Black girls in 1980s New York, the effect achieved is nothing short of mesmeric. Filmed with breathtaking immediacy and intimacy (much of the performance filmed as part of Milwaukee's former Alverno Presents program) while also delving deep behind the scenes into the creative process, Bronx Gothic is art of the highest caliber.]
