“A joyfully intoxicating celebration.”

New York Times 

“An eloquent portrayal of black struggle reaffirming Wilson’s place among the towering greats of American drama” 

Hollywood Reporter

Winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Revival of Play, August Wilson’s Jitney is directed by one of Wilson's foremost interpreters, Ruben Santiago-Hudson. Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured piece follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city threatens to board up the business and the boss’ son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. The show was originally produced by Manhattan Theatre Club.
