“A MASTERPIECE.  DYNAMITE!  A SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT. When you walk out of the theater, you’ll be so wrapped up in August Wilson’s world that a long time will go by before you find your way back into your own.  VIOLA DAVIS is SOMETHING ELSE. Her performance goes straight into the scrapbook of stage performances from which you learn how BRUTALLY TRUE TO LIFE GREAT ACTING CAN BE.”  – Wall Street Journal, Terry Teachout
