StageOne’s Production of “And In This Corner…Cassius Clay”

This was an awesome play about Cassius Clay, more widely known as Muhammad Ali. Here is a short summary of the beginning of the play. Cassius Clay, played by Justin Cornwell, starts out as a kid who plays around a lot. After somebody steals his bicycle, Cassius reports it to the police. Joe Martin, a policeman played by William McNulty, encourages Cassius to start boxing. Because Cassius said he was fast, Joe thought he had potential. Cassius wins his first amateur fight and next fights a bully, played by Robert N. Issac. After that, he goes to the Olympics. Will he win the gold? Go see the play and find out! The actors were great and they played their parts really well. My favorite character was Rudy, played by Crystian Wiltshire, because he was funny and cool. Also, I am partial to little brothers since I am one. He was very helpful to Cassius Clay by giving him confidence. I also liked Joe Martin because he was a strong, hard-working person who expected a lot of the people around him. My favorite part was the stage fighting when they were boxing because it looked cool and real. The lighting was awesome because it had a part were it got really bright right before the 3rd round of his first amateur fight. This was great play that you should see. Also you should be sure to see the other plays on the StageOne Family Pass.
