Edward, a bulky, graceful actor who looks like the photographs of Brown taken at the time, does a top-notch job of slipping in and out of his character's skin. As Brown matures physically, mentally, and emotionally, Edward slips from a T-shirt and jeans to short-sleeved shirt and khakis, and then to jacket, tie, and pork-pie hat.
He's equally adroit at conveying Brown's rage at those mean Harlem streets and his wonder upon hearing the music of Charlie Parker. Under Handman's always inventive direction, Edward also does deft impersonations of a stern white judge, the hooker who gave Pimp his name, and Pimp and Danny in varying stages of drug addiction. The performance is ultimately most remarkable for its depiction of a young boy growing into a man of equal parts pride and humility--in other words, a gentleman. Claude Brown's book ends quite beautifully with the following reminiscence: "When I was very young--about five years old, maybe younger--I would always be sitting out on the stoop.
I remember Mama telling me and Carole to sit on the stoop and not to move away from in front of the door. Even when it was time to go up and Carole would be pulling me on me to come upstairs and eat, I never wanted to go, because there was so much out there in that street. I could go out in the street for an afternoon, and I would see so much that, when I came in the house, I'd be talking and talking for what seemed like hours. Dad would say, 'Boy, why don't you stop that lyin'?
You know you didn't see all that.
