Ruben Santiago-Hudson is bringing late playwright August Wilson’s words of wisdom to life in How I Learned What I Learned, and now you’ve got one more week to catch the production. The show had been slated to play through December 22 and will now play through December 29. Directed and co-conceived by long-time Wilson collaborator Todd Kreidler, How I Learned What I Learned is set to open November 24 at off-Broadway’s Pershing Square Signature Center.
The Signature Theatre Company production shares stories of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright’s first few jobs, a stint in jail, his first kiss, his foray into films and the lifelong friends he made. The new mounting marks the New York premiere of Wilson’s one-man show.
How I Learned What I Learned features scenic and projection design by David Gallo, costume design by artistic advisor Costanza Romero, lighting design by Thom Weaver and sound design by Dan Moses Schreier.
