SOCAL SPOTLIGHT: Gem of the Ocean through November 16 By August WilsonDirected by Gregg T. Daniel A Noise Within I saw this during previews last week, magical and heartbreaking!
Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson unfolds the African American legacy in the first chronological episode of his celebrated American Century Cycle—a soaring, mystical tale of a man desperate for redemption in 1904 Pittsburgh. Aunt Ester, a 285-year-old “soul cleanser,” sends him on a spiritual journey that dissects the nature of freedom amidst oppression and spurs him to take up the mantle of justice.
