The Broadway debut of August Wilson’s Jitney is directed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (The Piano Lesson & Seven Guitars). Jitney, the only drama of Wilson’s American Century Cycle that has never been seen on Broadway. It is now open at the Manhattan Theatre Club, Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, New York, 2017. It stars John Douglas Thompson, Brandon J. Dirden, Anthony Chisholm, André Holland, and Carra Patterson.

 Amidst a moment of vibrant re-imaginings of August Wilson’s work, both on stage and screen, this conversation will contemplate the meaning of his work and legacy, explore the practice of contemporary practitioners of stage and screen craft, and imagine the future of the trajectory of black storytelling. Producer Kamilah Forbes, playwright Chisa Hutchinson, writer, actor, recording artist Carl Hancock Rux, and Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Director of August Wilson’s Jitney currently on Broadway, will participate in a conversation moderated by Professor and Director of the August Wilson Society, Dr. Sandra G. Shannon. — Schomburg Center
