Marcella Lowery, Arnold Johnson, Roxie Roker

Taking place in a Harlem apartment, Martie Charles-Evans’s very loosely plotted drama offered its performers opportunities for interesting character portrayals. The chief persons included Jameena (Marcella Lowery), a young, Black seamstress who prefers her part-time job to going into business for herself; her philandering, drummer boyfriend, Omar Butler I (Dick Williams); a predatory neighbor, Vivian Williams (Lucretia R. Collins),who deals drugs and hankers for the drummer; and an oddball janitor, Crazy Man Johnson (Arnold Johnson), whose teenage son dies of an overdose. – Samuel L. Leiter, Encylopedia of the New York Stage 1970-75
