Under Brandon McShaffrey’s direction, Ijames doesn’t so much impersonate Baldwin as inhabit him.

Ijames, who's been popularly cast around town, is an actor with a lot of moves. He uses them nicely in The Threshing Floor.
- Howard Shapiro, Philadelphia Inquirer
Director Brandon McShaffrey moves The Threshing Floor briskly, using sound designer Matthew Lorenz's incisive jazz selections to propel the many shifts in time, space and character. We never forget that Ijames is an actor — he's presenting a story, not an impersonation — and marvel at this emotional and verbal dexterity.

The Threshing Floor has more depth, depicting James Baldwin as a man of great integrity, unafraid to show his true nature. It marks an exciting playwriting debut.
