Directed by the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright's long-time collaborator Todd Kreidler, August Wilson's How I Learned What I Learned charts one man's journey of self-discovery and what it means to be a black artist in America.
The design team includes David Gallo (Scenic and Projection Design), Constanza Romero (Associate Artist and Costume Design), Thom Weaver (Lighting Design), and Dan Moses Schreier (Sound Design). Winnie Y. Lok is the Production Stage Manager.
