Perfect Blackman, The?

Synopsis
Live video recording of Blue Mountain Theatre Company’s production of Floyd Kmight’s play The Perfect Black Man? Charles Tomlin is Othello and Rob Carroll is Iago.`When another woman makes a play for your man - how low would you be willing to go to keep him, especially when that man is Othello Le Moor, known to the black community as The Perfect Blackman? With his high profile political career and a devoted new wife he is the envy of all. But factor in an unscrupulous son, a bitter best friend & a malevolent EX wife and the equation becomes very ugly’. {From Blue Theatre Company’s website].
