The role of Usher/God/Understanding has my favorite text I've ever spoken onstage. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' work is a different kind of poetry than Shakespeare, but there is no other word for it than beautiful. Understanding's final monologue, where he stretches for the answer, fails, still tries to do the best he can, and discovers something greater is humanity at its most raw. Working to convey those notions, in a character that started as myself and over the course of each show grew into something more, was a privilege. I can only hope it resonated with the audience as much as it did with me.
