Theater Production: Jitney: Fine Arts Center Ball Theater, 8:00PM
Jitney by August Wilson; directed by Professor Dwight Watson.
Penned by late Pulitzer prize-winning playwright August Wilson, Jitney dramatizes the lives of several African-American men hustling to make a living as jitneys--unofficial, unlicensed taxi cab drivers living in Pittsburgh during the 1970s. As urban renewal threatens to board up the jitney station, men share stories and gossip, two young lovers fight for their future, and the station owner confronts his long-estranged son. Wilson illuminates the human condition with an exquisite sense of the poetry of ordinary life. ''Jitney holds its audience in charmed captivity.” --The New York Times.
