It's 1969 and change is in the air. But for Memphis, the owner of a rundown diner in a dying Pittsburgh neighborhood, the civil rights movement takes a back seat to more immediate problems. His diner has been slated for demolition in the city's urban renewal plan, but he has a competing offer from a predatory businessman. Caught between idealism and brutal reality, Memphis struggles to determine the fate of the place where his customers gathered for decades to share their struggles, hopes and dreams. Pulitzer Prize-winner August Wilson's searing, humorous, and potent portrait of African-American life in the '60s tells a complex story of the inner lives of ordinary people at a turning point in American history.

Quotes & Highlights

- The 1984 film adaptation won eight Oscars, including Best Picture.
When your hard-earned fame has been surpassed by a brilliantly gifted, potty-mouthed golden boy, what else can you do but smile to his face while secretly plotting his downfall? Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, winner of seven Tony Awards ‑ including Best Play ‑ and the Oscar for Best Picture, depicts the flamboyant genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the eyes of his desperately jealous contemporary, composer Antonio Salieri.
With Edward Gero (Nixon’s Nixon) as Antonio Salieri, Sasha Olinick (Around the World in 80 Days, The Talented Mr. Ripley) as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Laura C. Harris (26 Miles) as Constanze Weber, and DC theatre favorite Floyd King as Emperor Joseph II. Mark Ramont, from Ford’s Theatre, directs a towering story of greed, obsession, and guilt set to the glorious music of revenge.
