All of the lead actors were incredible, and really took on their roles with emotion and conviction. The theater was a great venue that provided unobstructed sight lines... continued

Description

In some ways, August Wilson looms larger than life at Seattle Rep. Literally—he is memorialized in a statue just south of there, welcoming people into the Seattle Center campus via a pathway that also bears his name.

He looms figuratively, too. There is a sense of wonder when talking about Mr. Wilson’s legacy at the theatre. After all, the United States is the only country to have produced all of his plays (his 10-play Pittsburgh Cycle, as well as his one-man show How I Learned What I Learned).

When Mr. Wilson passed away in 2005, he became for many like a character his plays: working diligently to illuminate the African American experience in the United States during the twentieth century.
