Last night Penumbra Theatre got some well-deserved major media coverage when Lou Bellamy and his team were the subject of an in-depth profile on NBC's "Rock Center" hosted by Brian Williams.
Favorite quote: when Hoda Kotb says "Lou Bellamy is proof that if you really work hard where you are, you can make something great of yourself, and I love love love that about him."

Footage includes interviews with Lou Bellamy, Abdul Salaam El Razzac and Dennis Spears, and scenes of rehearsals for "I Wish You Love," "Two Old Black Guys Just Sitting Around Talking" and "Two Trains Running."
