Rohan writes a great review of Jeveeta’s play. It’s a must see!
At Saturday’s curtain call for “Two Queens, One Castle,” exhausted star Jevetta Steele mimed pulling out her heart as she rose from a bow. Crushing her imaginary heart between her palms, she scattered it to the standing audience. The motion was a fitting one, as she seemed to leave everything on the stage in a full-throttle performance of the show she co-wrote with director Thomas W. Jones II. (On Monday, Jones won an Ivey Award for his direction of “Yellowman” in a Mixed Blood Theatre production at the Guthrie.) In some musicals, the songs serve to underscore a point, offer release from tension or propel the narrative. But the narrative is not the big part of “Two Queens,” which opened in a Mixed Blood revival over the weekend at the Music Box Theatre in Minneapolis. Instead, the music and colorful songs orbit a subject. Far from depressing, as I expected it to be, “Two Queens” is an informative and surprisingly entertaining work. The story at the heart of “Two Queens” is a current and increasingly common one. A married man has a gay affair, wrecking his marriage and contracting HIV even as he steps into a truer self. Although it is autobiographical, Steele and director-choreographer Jones have made this story into something of a musical fable, with generic names given to the characters: Husband (played with great affection by Jahi Kearse), Wife (Steele), Lover (Xavier Rice in a sassy turn), Sister Minister (the incandescent and joyful Thomasina Petrus) and Momma (Roz White, a picture of righteousness and decency). I missed “Two Queens” when it was first staged a few years ago; I’m told that this version is a bit more polished. Still, what I liked about it were those moments of rawness, when the music, nimbly conducted by Sanford Moore, and the singing came together to lift the veil of depression. Whether delivering blues or gospel, jazz or R&B, Steele invested her songs not only with hopeful innocence (“I Said Yes”) and hurt (“If He Says What He Says”), but also with an indomitable spirit. You could hear, pulsing under almost everything, a will to survive. It was a feeling that she stirringly transferred to the audience. Rohan Preston • 612-673-4390
