First act of this play is as good as it gets. Excellent writing, casting, direction and staging.
Second act drags a bit but we went home happy. Easy to see why this production received Tony nominations!
One of the major themes of this play is the...continued

I love that CTG honors August Wilson and the African American experience through these top notch/Broadway level productions like Jitney. Seats were in the back, but center to the action and there was a talk back after with Bernard that was truly...continued

One of the best productions of this play I’ve seen. Direction was top notch and the performances were just terrific. Each character was fully realized. Good work by all involved.

It was our 2nd time seeing Jitney. It's an excellent play and this was an outstanding cast. Can't beat seeing it at the Taper which doesn't have a bad seat in the house.

What a great show! I was enthralled with all the characters who brought the dialogue to life. The father and son relationship was so intense, I wanted to go out there and tell the father to calm down and “get off” his son. August Wilson did an...continued

I have seen all of August WIlson's works and Jitney 3 times now. It is always a great experience. The Mark Taper is the perfect place for the play.

Riveting, with unexpected twists and turns in the plot.
Universally applicable testament to the messy process involved in turning a person into a
mature, self-actualized adult who accepts responsibility for his/her own decisions.
