Very well produced, great sets, wonderful actors and an insightful, timely script. Gosh it would be nice if MVCPA had satellite concession stands in the balcony and house left lobby.

The first half was a little slow. But, the second half tied it all together and was very good. The actors were excellent. Great writing and dialog.

Description

Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s inspired final play is a powerful elegy for a lost time, a hustling comedy-drama set in a neglected Pittsburgh neighborhood at the twilight of the 20th century, 1997. There, a charismatic African American politician is running for mayor, caught between the fresh-faced spirit of the future and the soulful voices of the past. Must he give up his song to fulfill his dreams? His hopes to protect his heritage? Aldo Billingslea (The Elephant Man_) and Anthony J. Haney (_Fences) star in the drama of a lifetime.
