‘Tangled’ playwright calls out President Barack Obama

In one scene, the play’s pivotal character, Clo, comes down hard on America’s first black president, essentially asking “what has he done for blacks lately?”

“There’s a fine line between courageous and crazy and to take up the issue of President Obama is not easy, especially in his hometown,” Anderson-Cobb admitted during a telephone interview on Wednesday.

“But he comes to Chicago in the midst of some kind of killing spree, collect money from a fund-raiser and leaves. We as a community have to do more than just pay for him to get re-elected,” she said.
