Highlights often come when Charlotte Cohn, playing Whitelady, comes to the fore. She, along with Samantha Debicki and Nicholas Job, who play Whitegirl and Whiteboy, is particularly grand in "A Brother Sighs," which deftly parodies the spoken stage directions found in Tarell Alvin McCraney's work. Elsewhere, Jennifer Nikki Kidwell as Blackgirl and Burris as Blackboy prove uniformly fearless in their performances, particularly when the play assails Tyler Perry's Madea movies.
