How was your experience?
August Wilson is such a fine and important playwright. It's a pity his life ended young. One expects that future plays would have only enhanced his story telling, capacity to build denouement and tension, that results in remarkable theatre. The Multi Ethnic Theater Production of Jitney is superb, a large (9 actor) cast, working as an ensemble, sustains the plot development as well as sub-plot that explore complex and difficult dyad relationships. Wonderful acting and shrewd direction in the small space of the "in the round" theater works, and graphs the attention of the viewer throughout. Go see it.
