Pillsbury House's "Pa's Hat": A scary adventure, then something more
Might not get out of this one alive: Regina Marie Williams in "Pa's Hat"
Pa's Hat is a truly compelling show, but only the first act is the wholly white-knuckle experience I had been expecting. Thomas's stand-in Cora (Regina Marie Williams
) is every bit the enraged American protesting her and her father's imprisonment on spurious grounds; in one very long scene, she does verbal battle with military commander Mambu (CP
2007 Best ActorAnsa Akyea
). Cora is out of her depth, and there's a real sense that the unthinkable might take place.
