Clayton Community Theatre shows just how successful community theater can be with a stirring production that demonstrates an appreciation of Wilson's exceptional script and an emotional connection to its themes.
Part study in the importance of family and past sacrifices, part ghost story, the Black Rep’s ‘The Piano Lesson’ by August Wilson is lively, funny and challenging.
Fences fills the 1950s slot in August Wilson's magnificent creation of plays for each decade of the 20th century. For me, it is one of the best.
In the Black Rep production of "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," the cancers of racial inequality and overt cruelty are laid bare with a finessed, punch-to–the-gut impact, one that left me with a renewed sense of outrage for a brand of casual racism that must never, ever be tolerated again.
