“Actors Talk August” Presented by August Wilson House
Monday, February 1 from 8:15 to 9:15 pm
August Wilson House celebrates America’s greatest playwright with a new web series of substantial insider interviews called “Actors Talk August.” Featured are leading August Wilson actors and directors, national and regional, interviewed by Chris Rawson, veteran Pittsburgh Post-Gazette theater critic. In this edition, Rawson will interview Phylicia Rashad. Rashad is most widely known for her TV popularity on the Cosby Show, but before that she had a career on Broadway. For this edition of Actors Talk August, her chief interest is as Aunt Ester in Gem of the Ocean – on Broadway and elsewhere – and as director of several Wilson revivals since.
