Gem Of The Ocean in Broadway GEM OF THE OCEAN
Hattiloo Theatre
4/28-5/14/2017
August Wilsonís Pittsburgh Cycle (a series of ten plays each set in a different decade) begins with Gem of the Ocean, which takes place in 1904 in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The play unfolds in the home of Aunt Ester, a 285-year-old wise woman. Citizen Barlow, a man who has fled from Alabama after indirectly causing another manís death, has come to Aunt Esterís because of the tales he has heard of her soul-cleansing powers. When an incident in the town causes the death of Solly, a former slave and conductor of the Underground Railroad, we see Citizen step up to continue Sollyís legacy, having discovered the importance of history and freedom.

Dearly Departed in Broadway DEARLY DEPARTED
The Circuit Playhouse
4/21-5/14/2017
In the backwoods of the Bible Belt, the Turpin family has just suffered the loss of their father, but their problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. First-born Ray-Bud drinks himself silly; Junior, the youngest son, is dealing with financial ruin, monster no-neck kids, and a wife who suspects him of infidelity (in the family car); last, but certainly not least, their spinster sister, Delightful, copes with death as she does life, by devouring mountains of junk food. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn to their friends and eccentric community of misfits who pull together to help them through their hours of need. Dearly Departed proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious.
