August Wilson can be relied upon to provide moving and thought provoking theatre and this production is an example of that. There are monologues from some of the characters that by themselves are almost worth the ticket price. Also, I love the...continued

The acting was uneven. In fact, one of the main actors had problems with his lines (and he wasn't the understudy). A bit disappointing.
