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.

I went with a dear friend to celebrate her 50th birthday and it turned out to be the perfect gift. She enjoyed the show immensely as did I. The acting was excellent, the settings and costumes were perfect, and the transitions were seamless. I noticed that there were people there of all ages and all laughed at the right moments. It was wonderful!

With his fortune on the line, Fogg and his valet use rail, steamer, and elephant to race through India, Asia, and America. Such challenges as a snooping detective, a possible human sacrifice, and a runaway train are met with Victorian virtue and a precision pocket watch. Nick Olcott (The Book Club Play) directs this wacky adventure.
