Life lessons from a theatre giant
From one of America’s greatest playwrights comes this autobiographical journey through August Wilson’s days as a young poet, his first few jobs, a stint in jail, and his encounters with racism, music, and love as a struggling writer. This heartfelt theatrical memoir charts one man’s journey of self-discovery through adversity, and what it means to be a black artist in America.
There will be no streamed performances of “How I Learned What I Learned”. The best way to see the show is a live, in-person performance!
