As the Empires struggle to rally to a championship season, players and their fans begin to question lore, their loyalty, and the price of victory.
Sugar Ray Robinson was pound for pound the greatest boxer of all time. During his 25-year professional career from 1940 to 1965, he was the first winner in boxing history at five division championships (in the middleweight and welterweight divisions). This “King of Harlem” was renowned for his flexibility, power and flamboyant lifestyle outside the ring. His career peaked between 1947 and 1950, before the era of televised boxing, so his style and heritage are less preserved today than those of other boxers, including his admirer, Muhammed Ali. that’s why Sugar ray by playwright Laurence Holder is so important. He picks up on Robinson’s life and boxing legacy in a biographical solo show that is gripping to those who idolized him and enlightening to those who grew up after his time. The play will be screened January 6-23, 2022 at the Gene Frankel Theater, 24 Bond Street, presented by 24 Bond Arts Center in association with Faith Steps Productions and performed by AUDELCO winner Reginald L. Wilson. The theater’s play area will be transformed into a boxing ring for the production.
Robinson was the most charismatic athlete of his age and one of the most graceful and handsome men of all time. He was larger than life, idolized by millions of young African Americans. He is the originator of the modern sports entourage, traveling with a golf pro, a barber, an Arab dwarf who spoke five languages and his signature pink Cadillac convertible. Crowds gathered wherever he was parked. During his first retirement, from 1952 to 1955, he pursued a career as a dancer, opening at the French Casino in New York for $ 15,000 per week. After that, showbiz was down for him. WC sports reporter Heinz quoted a Broadway booking agent as saying, “Robinson was a good dancer, for a fighter. Maybe no other fighter danced so well, but the hallmark of his number was his change of clothes. He looked good in everything he wore. Nonetheless, “Sugar” was probably the first black athlete to establish himself as a celebrity outside of sport. He was a staple of the New York social scene in the 1940s and 1950s, and his glamorous restaurant, Sugar Ray’s, was a destination for Broadway and Hollywood stars.
