Redmoon Theater's Hawkman Prince

JITNEY AT THE COURT THEATRE

Pulitzer-winning playwright August Wilson’s play about a broken-down gypsy cab company is a tightly wound drama—sometimes violent and always emotionally charged.

DETAILS:

Starts 9/6–10/14 The director Ron O.J. Parson and the playwright August Wilson are as close to a can’t-miss combination as you’re apt to find this season. Like most of Wilson’s plays, Jitney is set in Pittsburgh Hill district. This 1970s segment of the playwright’s epic Century Cycle is both the very specific story of jitney (unlicensed) cabbies and (at the risk of sounding totally cheesy) a universal story of human struggle and hope. $45–$65. Court Theatre, 5535 S Ellis. courttheatre.org.
