Review On Birdland Blue

While watching Marcus Clark-Oliver work the club as Davis, the audience has to suspend disbelief. Davis was a short, dark, skinny man with a raspy voice. Clark-Oliver is a tall, light-skinned, handsome man with a healthy voice.  He doesn't really display the essence of a Davis – but rather gives the audience insight into this legendary performer. Clark-Oliver gives a stellar performance. The supporting cast all give enjoyable performances.  The actors who are pretending to play the various instruments are adept at feigning actually playing.
