Invisible Man

Tuesday, Jan 8, 2013 7:30p

The nameless protagonist confronts racial injustice, power politics, and betrayal in a stage adaptation of Ralph Ellison's classic novel that's every bit as unsettling as Ellison would have wanted it to be. Adapted by Oren Jacoby, directed by Christopher McElroen, and starring Teagle F. Bougere as the title character, in a performance that steadily grows in force over the play's nearly three hours. - Don Aucoin, Globe Staff

Ralph Ellison’s enduring novel, “Invisible Man,” vibrates with rich language and imagery. It probes the great themes of American literature — the inequities of race and class, the struggle for success, the search for identity — yet for almost 60 years, it was never made into a movie or a play. Recently, that changed. Oren Jacoby’s stage adaptation makes its New England debut through Feb. 4 at the Huntington Theatre Company.
