The Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company celebrates it’s 25th Anniversary with “MOM’S” An Evening of Comedy with Jackie “Mom’s” Mabley and Her Ladies, written by and starring Clarice Taylor. The veteran actress Clarice Taylor blends Mom’s delicious humor with a tasty stroll through African American History, serving up a hilarious and moving brew of jokes and memories that evoke four amazing singers from the past: Ma Rainey, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, and Mahalia Jackson. These Divas join her on stage and create theatrical magic.
Clarice Taylor is a stage, film and television actress most recently known for her recurring role on television on The Cosby Show as Dr. Heathcliff “Cliff” Huxtable (Bill Cosby)’s mother, Anna Huxtable. She was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1986 for the role.
