Only one of the plays in two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson's masterful
The American Century Cycle has never been seen on Broadway — until now.
Set in the 1970s, AUGUST WILSON’S JITNEY is a richly textured piece that follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city threatens to board up the business and the boss’ son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last.
Directing is RUBEN SANTIAGO-HUDSON, one of Wilson’s finest interpreters.
greatest African American playwright the
nation has produced is to limit the scope of his significance as a contributor to the country’s dramatic heritage. August Wilson had staked a legitimate claim to the title of the nation’s
most important dramatist."
-Peter Marks (The Washington Post)
