The play is a roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable and eventful life, and highlights how his radical activism caused him to be disowned and disremembered, even by the leaders and descendants of the civil rights movement. It features much fiery oratory and some of his famous songs, including “Ol’ Man River.” Wednesday, 7 p.m., Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague Ave. $12-$22. (800) 325-SEAT.
