Actor Roger Guenveur Smith

TODAY I have a story in the LA Times on the actor Roger Guenveur Smith, who has acted in a number of Spike Lee movies and chronicled American -- and especially California -- history through his solo theater pieces.

One of them, Juan and John -- about a fight between Dodger John Roseboro and Giant Juan Marichal -- comes to the Kirk Douglas Theatre this week.

I'm traveling this week, so have to be brief... But HERE is my piece. Smith's work is smart and energetic and well worth checking out.
