AUGUST WILSON CELEBRATION: How I Learned What I Learned

Presented in special partnership with the Goodman Theatre

In 2003, August Wilson wrote and performed this autobiographical one-man show, revealing intimate details from his life and how his plays reflect those events. This concert reading features Ruben
Santiago-Hudson, a friend and colleague of Wilson’s, who thrilled New York audiences with the piece at Signature Theatre in 2013. A discussion about Wilson and his work will follow the presentation.
