James Baldwin on the alchemy of live performance

James Baldwin by Beauford Delaney (1945)

In the theater, a current flowed back and forth between the audience and the actors: flesh and blood corroborating flesh and blood — as we say, testifying.
--James Baldwin on Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, from The Devil Finds Work (1976)
