After appearing in 6 different August Wilson productions as an actor, Herb will be heading to Phoenix at the top of the year to direct his first August Wilson play, Joe Turners Come and Gone. 

 

Set in 1911 Pittsburgh, this moving work chronicles Black life of that time. Each resident of a Black boardinghouse has a different relationship to their past of slavery, as well as to their urban present. August Wilson gives haunting voice to the souls of this dispossessed group of Americans at the beginning of the century. It is his epic vision, power and poetic sense that lift their stories to strange and compelling heights.

Phoenix, are you ready?
