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.

We got front row seats with Goldstar (though the theater was empty enough that we could have moved back had we wanted - it was a Wednesday). The play was entertaining and had some surprises toward the end. I was surprised to learn that it was such a groundbreaking film and was nominated for so many awards and is considered a classic. I wonder if there was something about this performance that made it less scintillating than the movie. It seemed like the actors were good.
The performance is recommended for audiences ages 13 years old and older.
