The New York premiere of the late August Wilson's autobiographical one-man show, How I Learned What I Learned, officially opens Nov. 24 at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre. Read the Playbill.com story.

Co-conceived with and directed by Todd Kreidler, the play features Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Stick Fly, Gem of the Ocean, Seven Guitars).

"In this solo show, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson shares stories about his first few jobs, a stint in jail, an early relationship, his first kiss, his foray into cinema and the friends he has had his entire life," press notes state. "Directed by long-time collaborator Todd Kreidler and featuring Ruben Santiago-Hudson, director of the acclaimed Signature Theatre production of The Piano Lesson, How I Learned What I Learned charts one man's journey of self-discovery through adversity and what it means to be a black artist in America."
