August Wilson set this drama in Pittsburgh, 1948. As things settle down after WWII, things unsettle in the Hill District. Something's closing in. Choices narrow. And talent -- like Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton's with a guitar -- gets stifled. He sang on a hit record, but didn't make "hit record money." Now he refuses to "live without." Ro Boddie heads a strong Cygnet Theatre cast as Floyd. They turn Sean Fanning's micro-real set into a site for the hopes, fears, and truths of seven people who, as Wilson says, "struggle to remain whole in the face of so many things that threaten to pull them apart." Critic's Pick.
