A deserving appreciation of August Wilson in the New York Times
For what it’s worth: I met August Wilson at Yale in 1990ish? when he was premiering Two Trains Running (I was an extra in Yale’s preentation of Pygmalion). I got to hang out with Larry Fishburne during the run of that play. I met Two Trains director, Lloyd Richards at the Yale train station that same year when we were going back and forth to NYC.
Charles S Dutton’s broadway performance in Wilson’s The Piano Lesson was one of the most powerful, influencial theatrical events I have ever experienced.
