Starring Roger Robinson, winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a play. "Great works of art often tote heavy baggage. Yet the revival of August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone, a drama of indisputable greatness, feels positively airborne." -- Ben Brantley, The New York Times Lincoln Center Theater presents a new production of August Wilson's award-winning play Joe Turner's Come And Gone, directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher. Joe Turner's Come and Gone, part of Mr. Wilson's ten-play Century Cycle, is set in 1911, and tells the story of Herald Loomis who, after serving seven years hard labor, has journeyed North with his young daughter and arrives at a Pittsburgh boarding house filled with memorable characters who aid Herald Loomis in his search for his inner freedom.
