It's Thursday, which means theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck is here with her weekly review.
Today, she discusses Radio Golf, by August Wilson – the final installment in the late Pulitzer-Prize-winning playwright's ten-part Century Cycle.
Directed by Carl Cofield, Radio Golf is the story of an African-American real estate developer running for mayor of Pittsburgh in the mid-1990s who struggles with his role in gentrifying his childhood neighborhood.
The Everyman production stars Dawn Ursula as Mame Wilks, Jamil A.C. Mangan as Harmond Wilks, Jason B. McIntosh as Roosevelt Hicks, Anton Floyd as Sterling Johnson and Charles Dumas as Elder Joseph Barlow.
This Sunday, Nov. 10, the Everyman is holding its rescheduled Market Center Trash Bash – a large-scale neighborhood cleanup and block party.
