Hill District, Pittsburgh, PA 15219
It’s 1948, and aspiring blues musician Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton, just out of jail, is asked to sign a record deal after a song he recorded months before becomes an unexpected hit. Can his fight for his own humanity, self-understanding and self-acceptance succeed in the face of personal and societal ills?
August Wilson’s tragicomedy, which received Tony and Pulitzer nominations for its Broadway run in 1995, will be performed for the first time in the back yard of August Wilson’s childhood home, the actual setting of the play.
Free, secured parking will be available at the Energy and Innovation Center at 1435 Bedford Avenue, a few blocks away. (See the parking map below.) We will provide a shuttle service.
Tickets are STILL available!
