August Wilson scored a Pulitzer Prize for Fences (which also won a Tony) and The Piano Lesson and is now the star of his own show ... sort of. Created and originally performed by Wilson at Seattle Repertory Theatre in 2003, this production of How I Learned What I Learned stars Eugene Lee (Miss Evers' Boys, Fences) as the prolific playwright. With direction by Wilson's longtime friend and collaborator Todd Kreidler, Lee steps into Wilson's shoes to share his personal stories about his encounters with racism, music, love, a stint in jail, his first kiss, life-changing friendships as a young poet in Pittsburgh's Hill District and what it means to be a black artist in America.

This was a great play, that strategically dealt with the assumptions, stereotypes and guilt of race issues on both sides of the fence.
It was definitely well written & the actors were believable.
My biggest issue was the excessive use of expletives! Not only was it unnecessary but offensive. Therefore, it gets 4 vs. 5 stars!
I recommend Goldstar rating the plays when posting events.

This is a must see play. So intellegently written. The dialogue is fast paced and at times I wished I could rewind/replay to catch the words again as it really makes you think! It's the kind of script that sits with you and you want to talk...continued
