Wise words, warm memories, and cool soul sounds linger from a hot summer night on the back porch, when young Jay Jay and his mom Edie welcomed a new moon over West Philadelphia. Tony winner Colman Domingo (CANDYMAN, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, EUPHORIA) stars in an animated extract from his stage play A BOY AND HIS SOUL. A fond and frank recollection of his mother and their moments together. NEW MOON, for all its theatrical affectations, bursts with genuine love and affection–and the graceful animation by directors Jeff Le Bars and Jérémie Balais makes it all the more magical. – Rupert Bottenberg
