PHOTOS | August Wilson's "Jitney"
Thursday, October 03, 2013
The Greene Space presented a reading of August Wilson's Jitney on Sept. 16, 2013 — part of our historic series recording all 10 plays in Wilson's American Century Cycle. The plays in the decade-by-decade cycle were presented in the order in which they premiered.
Set in 1977 in a worn-down gypsy cab station in Pittsburgh, Jitney tells the story of men hustling to make a living as jitneys — unofficial and unlicensed taxi cabs.
The reading was directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson and featured Amari Cheatom, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Anthony Chisholm, Barry Shabaka Henley, Harvy Blanks, Ray Anthony Thomas, Roscoe Orman, J. Bernard Calloway and Joaquina Kalukango.
