Hattie- What I Need You To Know!
HattieWhat I Need You To Know! is a celebration of Hattie McDaniel being the first African American to win the Academy Award in 1940. Los Angeles is getting the West Coast premier after it's successful run in Harlem and Denver. Written by acclaimed actress of stage and screen, Vickilyn Reynolds, who has starred in Bring In da Noise, Bring In da Funk, The Colored Museum and Mama I Want to Sing, HattieWhat I Need You To Know! captures the essence of Hattie McDaniel's humble beginnings in Denver and her rise to stardom in Hollywood with heart and soul. Denver Post Theater Critic, John Moore, recently stated that, "Reynolds knocks out a roof-blower like "St Louis Blues and for a few minutes, we might as well be sitting alongside McDaniel in heaven."
