Anji White, an alumna of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department‘s acting program, has won rave reviews for her performance in Sunset Baby, running through April 10 at TimeLine Theatre, 615 W. Wellington in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood.
In what Chicago Sun-Times critic Hedy Weiss called “a starmaking turn . . . sure to leave you gasping for breath,” White plays the daughter of a 1960s black militant. “White’s raw, fearless performance . . . is simply uncanny as she radically transforms herself from one scene to the next in ways that go far beyond all the superficial changes of outfits, wigs and makeup, and reveals both her character’s knife-like, slutty surface and agonizing vulnerability. It is, quite simply, one of the more breathtaking performances you will see all season.”
N’Digo magazine agreed, and featured White in a cover story headlined “Accomplished Chicago Actress AnJi White Sizzles in ‘Sunset Baby.’ ”
