Carl Cofield remembers when “One Night in Miami” was only a few pages of text, a knockout story, and a beautiful dream.

Then, in 2013, while working at the Classical Theatre of Harlem, Cofield met Kemp Powers and was blown away by the playwright’s latest work: a fictionalized account of a true meeting between four powerful Black men in 1964. Cofield jumped at the chance to direct the play’s premiere performance.
