For over 15 years my love has put it down in countless theaters. She’s an actor’s actor. Through hard work and dedication and ceaseless prayer she will embark on a new chapter in her career. Who I am and will be, in part, I owe to her beautiful examples of persistence, excellence, and grace. Even though she’s not on this platform, (quite a strange thing we do on these platforms) I’m saying congrats to her!!!! Congratulations My Love! Get it ALL!!! #actress #wife #mother #work #laconfidential #cbs #alanaarenas #congratulations #love #blackfamily #blackwomenrock #blackwomanmagic

If you’ve seen “Head of Passes” by @octarell_again in Chicago, New York or Los Angeles, you’ve seen my wife play the mess out of The character COOKIE. Two years ago her performance at the Public Theater (NY) garnered her a Lucille Lortel Award for outstanding featured actress in a play. My phone died, which is why the video is so short, but I believe I was able to capture her essence and why I love her so: she loves God and she is so damn graceful! Today I salute my lovie, Alana Arenas Agyeman!!! ❤️❤️❤️ #throwbackthursday #lovie #wife #blackwoman #blackmothers #actress #actorslife #headofpasses #tarellalvinmccraney #publictheater #marktaperforum #centertheatregroup #newyork #losangeles #chicago #steppenwolf #cookie #alanaarenas #phyliciarashad #lucillelortelawards #blacklove #blackfamily #beautiful #love

#THEATRE is akin to #LIFE Each moment is a rehearsal for your next #ACT Do not be blinded by the bright lights The audience, though silent, is watching and constantly reviewing YOUR show in #RealTime You have to decide whether you're performing for #likes and #applause or If you are simply living your #TRUTH ~ Afterall, your #CHARACTER depends upon it (pun intended) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Throwing back to #XVIIXVII #HeadOfPasses #Theatre @ctgla #PhyliciaRashad #TarellMcCraney #AlanaArenas #FrancoisBattiste #KyleBeltran #JBernardCalloway #JohnEarlJelks #JaquelineWilliams #JamesCarpenter #TinaLandau #HappyN7kBecomesMe 💕🎭 💕 at Mark Taper Forum

Last night’s performance by Phylicia Rashad in playwright Tarbell Alvin McCraney’s “Head of Passes” (co-writer of the Oscar winning screen play “Moonlight” & at the age of 33 winner of the MacArthur “Genius” Award) was a master class in acting. A story based on the Book of Job, “Shelah” (Phylicia Rashad) is a woman trying to get her house in order before dying. But God has other plans, plans that lead to Shelah’s one sided heated conversations with God. A heart breaking performance that is worthy of a “Tony”. I hope Mrs. Rashad’s schedule allows for a Broadway run!!! The rest of the cast brought their “A” game, Alana Arenas performance as “Cookie” brought me to tears. No surprise to learn that both Phylicia Rashad and Alana Arenas received 2016 Lucille Lortel Awards for their performance as leading and featured actress in a play. “Head of Passes” performances at the Mark Taper Forum end on Sunday, October 22, 2017.

#aboutlastnight OMG. I still have no words for yesterday night. But ... First things first: @octarell_again thank you for writting #headofpasses . What a play. 👏👏👍 Second: This cast is Genius. I loved everyone. They all so amazing and talented. BRAVA @johnearljelks, @kyperbole, @jbernardcalloway, @swa06, @thursdayboy /Alana Arenas, Jaquline Williams, James Carpenter. Kudos to you all. And the set. Wow. 👏👏👍 Third: Phylicia Rashad. OMG. I don't know how she is doing what she is doing on stage. But I'm glad I witnessed it. She is giving her all. She is leaving herself on stage. A master of her craft. 😍👑 #bowdown Fourth: She is the sweetest person I met. She was so patient and generous. She remembered me from NYC. I huged Phylicia Rashad. I can't believe it. How can you look this great after a performance like this. Not a bit tiered or excausted. FIVE: I might sound like a broken record. Run don't walk to see this play, this cast and the master Phylicia Rashad live. Go and see it. It was mindblowing, breathtaking and so moving. See Head of Passes at the Mark Taper Forum Downtown Los Angeles runs until October, 22. If you life in LA area go. If not travel there. I traveled 10.000 miles to see it and it was worth it. So no excuses to miss it. #marktaperforum #yesterdaynight #theatre #theater #theatreislife #lathtr #dtla #stage #losangeles #kinglear #boss #phyliciarashad #tarellalvinmccraney #johnearljelks #bookofjob #kylebeltran #jaqulinewilliams #alanaarenas #jbernardcalloway #breathtaking #Masterclass #legend #powerful #powerhouse #fbf #flashbackfriday #flashback at Mark Taper Forum

@quirkyful

•{Theatre}• Broadway in LA. I don't make a habit of going to the first night of previews, but when it's #phyliciarashad I make the exception because she will NOT put up subpar work. #headofpasses just may be her opus. The second act is nearly a 45 minute one woman show. But listen, the rest of the cast were no slouch. Impeccable character work by all. I know these people. Stellar direction by #tinalandau #tarellalvinmccraney nails the #humancondition yet again. #actingatitsfinest #theatre #actor #STANDINGOVATION #alanaarenas #kylebeltran #jbernardcalloway #jamescarpenter #francoisbattiste #johnearljelks #jacquelinewilliams @ctgla you continue to entice me back. at Mark Taper Forum
