    Mr. Rickey Calls a Meeting, by Ed Schmidt
    Directed by Rick Flynn
    Production dates: 1/24 – 2/09/2020

    In a NYC hotel room, in the spring of 1947, Branch Rickey, owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers, meets with four prominent African-Americans to discuss breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball. He wants support from their community to help with the controversy he knows will ensue. Jackie Robinson, Joe Louis, Paul Robeson, and Bill Robinson, aka Mr. Bojangles, attend the meeting – but it isn’t an easy fix. Concern about loss of jobs, as well as suspicion about Branch Rickey’s motives, come into play. The 2012 revival was nominated for three Jeff Awards for Play Production, Direction, and Ensemble.
