“The Piano Lesson”

Friday, November 30, 2012

Ruben Santiago-Hudson, director of “The Piano Lesson,” and Brandon Dirden and Roslyn Ruff, who play the leads, discuss the play, the fourth play of August Wilson’s epic Century Cycle. “The Piano Lesson” is a moving drama of family, history, and survival. In Pittsburgh’s Hill District in 1936, the Charles family battle their surroundings and each other over their shared legacy – an antique piano. “The Piano Lesson” is playing at the Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center.

I love pianos, it has played a major part in our family, we have worked for Steinway & sons, and it has shown us a very rich and beautiful life and has toned an artistic fluidity to our works..

Hello Ruben-Santiago Hudson. I am an AUDELCO nominated playwright. I have a new drama that I would like you to consider directing. How can I get in contact with you?
