What audiences said about “Two Trains Running”…

“This was a ‘nuanced’ play with many layers. Each person represented a different part of the African-American ‘experience’, and the interplay of societal forces could clearly be seen. Some of the lines were on the surface ‘funny’, but the play was very serious. August Wilson plays are stunning in their grasp of the human ‘character’ with both its flaws and redeeming features.”

“It helped me understand better the social issues I lived through as a teen.”

“So many rich themes and things to think about! Performers were excellent. I also enjoyed (and learned a lot) reading the entire program the next day. I think it’s amazing and wonderful that you’re doing all of August Wilson’s plays.”

“The performance level of the actors in this production was so uniformly excellent that it created one of the finest evenings of theater yet this year. The play is such an important “discussion” of the 1960’s and the Civil Rights movement. We were so fortunate to have the opportunity to see not only this show, but to see such fine actors!”
