DryerBuzz Living Atlanta Style | Only Just a Minute Opens in Atlanta | Story of MLK and BE Mays

August 28, 2014

Awesome evening #LivingAtlnataStyle when Only Just a Minute opened in Atlanta.  Only Just a Minute was produced by Morehouse graduate Bob Dockery, who gave us the buzz behind the buzz in the video below. Dockery tells us of the play where we travel into the stories of Benjamin E Mays and Dr Martin Luther Kings as their lives intersected as teacher/mentor/friend over their lifetimes.

Only Just a Minute mlk be mays play

The play was written by Aaron Henne including text and characters by Levy Lee Simon and directed by Atlanta’s own Tom Jones.  Willie Carpenter of Lifetime TV’s Devious Maids performs the title role of Benjamin E. Mays and Andrea Frye, a well-known essential on Atlanta stages, appears in the role of Sadie G. Mays, Dr. Mays’ beloved wife.

We got to buzz the play as it opened at Morehouse’s Ray Charles Performing Arts Center.  The play then moved to its host venue at the Southwest Arts Center, 915 New Hope Road, Atlanta for a run Aug. 27−Sept. 7.  Don’t miss it.
