REBECCA JACOBSON
7:30 pm Wednesdays-Saturdays and 2 pm Sundays through Feb. 16, Sunday January 26 | $32-$63
Winningstad Theatre
1111 SW Broadway
 

Another year, another August Wilson play at Portland Playhouse. This one finds the company at downtown's Winningstad Theatre, rather than at its normal Northeast Portland church-cum-theater, for Wilson's play about black taxi drivers in mid-'70s Pittsburgh. If it's anything like the Playhouse's previous productions of Wilson's Pittsburgh Cycle, expect powerful, simmering stuff.



Where: Winningstad Theatre
Phone: 488-5822
Address: 1111 SW Broadway
