The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - John McCal­lum

Since Ali Died The ti­tle of Since Ali Died re­fers to writer and per­former Omar Musa’s life­long ad­mi­ra­tion of Muham­mad Ali, a black hero who taught him as a young man that it was OK to be brown and to be Mus­lim. Musa’s ex­hil­a­rat­ing com­mand of lan­guage, rhythm, rhyme and metaphor is im­pres­sive. He is a per­former who does quite sub­ver­sive ma­te­rial with se­duc­tive charm. SBW Sta­bles The­atre, 10 Nim­rod Street, Dar­linghurst. To­day, 2pm and 7pm. Tick­ets: $30-$45. In­quiries: 1300 856 876 or online. Un­til Jan­uary 19.
