John Legend, André Holland, and the Cast of Jitney Bring August Wilson Back to Broadway

The ensemble discusses the importance of one of Wilson's lesser-known works.

August Wilson's Jitney celebrated its opening night at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on January 19, and after the curtain came down TheaterMania had the opportunity to talk with the cast and their supporters about this milestone. Watch producer John Legend, August Wilson's widow Constanza Romero, and director Ruben Santiago-Hudson discuss presenting the first-ever Broadway production of this August Wilson classic as an ensemble including André Holland, Brandon J. Dirden, and John Douglas Thompson share their delight at joining the "August Wilson family" at Manhattan Theatre Club.
