Black Super Hero Magic Mama has excellent intentions. In the first half, it follows the shooting of an unarmed black youth and how it impacts his mother, friend, aunt, teacher coach, and news anchor reporting the incident. This is powerful authentic writing, acting, direction and scenic design. The second half is more problematic because it has an alternate universe that includes super-heroes. That’s fine but I felt like the playwright backed herself into a corner with the second half. It doesn’t resonate. I admire what Inda Craig-Galvan was going for but the ending just feels tacked on. Once she works out the kinks I believe this will be a vibrant work.
