See Photos from How I Learned What I Learned


Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company has shared photos from the theater’s production of August Wilson’s How I Learned What I Learned, starring Eugene Lee. The auto-biographical reenactment of Wilson’s life through a monologue that shares a glimpse into where the characters in Wilson’s critically acclaimed Century Cycle came from, as his stories wander down the streets of Pittsburgh’s Hill District, the setting for nine of the ten plays in the cycle. The life and upbringing of the two time Pulitzer Prize winner is exposed though his antidotal stories and we see how his neighborhood and the politics, history, and personalities infused throughout this neighborhood influenced his world view long before the pen met the paper. The play runs through November 2 at the Southwest Arts Center in Atlanta. For tickets and more information, please visit the theater’s website.
