Standing alone on-stage, award-winning actor, Eugene Lee (III) becomes the voice of Pulitzer-Prize Winner, August Wilson. This one-man play is a memoir recounting Wilson's life as a Black artist in the Hill District of Pittsburgh. Walk the path from his roots, his first job, his first loves, and his experience with racism through the decades. How I Learned What I Learned gives an inside look into the experiences that shaped one of the most celebrated playwrights of the 20th Century.
“Lee is a magnetic actor who holds attention with a change of posture, a shrug of his shoulders, or a wide-eyed stare of mock disbelief. His wonderfully flexible vocal instrument allows him to become the various people whom Wilson encountered while his body moves in time to the rhythms of Wilson’s language, enhanced by the jazz music that he loved and a brief but expressive passage of Afro-American dance.”
~ Iris Fanger, "Theater Mania"
“Eugene Lee’s virtuoso performance propels the show.”
~ Jeremy D. Goodwin, "The ARTery"
