Williams said researching the era was her favorite part of putting the show together.
“That's about 75 percent of the excitement for me,” she said. “This was a very compact area of town, but it really showed the best of African-American entrepreneurship, and it was very interesting to learn more about it.”
Williams said audiences have enjoyed the show, especially the dance contest. There are about six performances left in the show's run, which concludes Feb. 28.
“It's been well-received,” she said. “I think we have a mixture of people who come to learn about Deep Deuce, and those who want to enjoy the music. We see a lot of people shaking their heads in agreement at points in the show where they connect with what's happening through their own personal experiences. That's very rewarding.”
