My memory of the ending in NY is that the actress playing Keisha turned her back to the white audience members who had come onto the stage, and addressed the black audience still seated in the house. I couldn't see her face. So I'm intrigued that you listened to Keisha "face to face" and saw her tears. Can you describe more how that worked? Did she speak facing the white people, the black people, or could she somehow include both? That difference would have changed my experience profoundly.
