    Review: Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Other Drama - 'Dancing On The Edge' Of Invisibility (Premiered 10/19)

    “I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie extoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids—and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to ...
