Behind-the-Scenes with the Cast of Jitney
A Celebration of August Wilson with Anthony Chisholm and James A. Williams
Free, Monday, February 6 at 7 PM at the Red Bank Public Library, 84 West Front Street
August Wilson celebrated the history and culture of black America in a monumental series of 10 plays. In this free event, his singular talent will be remembered by two of the actors most associated with his work. Anthony Chisholm originated roles in the New York productions of four of Wilson’s plays, including his Tony-nominated performance in Radio Golf. James A. Williams had a long professional relationship with Wilson extending back to the playwright’s first professional production in 1981. Don’t miss this special evening of stories and memories.
