From Spike Lee to the Stage, Flash is Back!


Flash is back and he's as smooth as ever.

It’s not easy walking through the club everyone knows that. It doesn’t make it any easier when the crowd goes wild when a Motown oldie pops on.
“Heartbeats!”
That term might not process especially when your drink ends up wearing you. That is unless you’ve seen the holy grail of soul films in Robert Townsend’s “Five Heartbeats.” More particularly when you see the womanizing, slick, should be  Sammie Davis Jr. protege, Flash, played by John Canada Terrell.
JCT was smooth but it’s hard to be Flash when you can’t dance at the club and let’s be honest that’s basically everybody. Fortunately the star that debuted his film career in Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” will be performing for one night only in local writer and actor Derrell Lawerence’s play “;Do You Trust Your Best Friend?” at the Temple Performing Arts Center Saturday December 3 at 7:30pm.
Terrell plays a smooth talking former junkie that finds faith, success and a whole lot of mess as betrayal runs rampant between best friends.
Terrell is sure to bring that Motown mystic to the stage by playing one of the few voices of reason that leaves you wondering “can I really trust my best friend?”
Well, can you?
