How I Learned What I Learned began performances Nov. 5 and will continue through Dec. 29.
"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."
The 2013-14 season at Signature Theatre consists entirely of plays receiving world or New York-premiere productions.
Tickets for the initial run through Dec. 15 are now sold out. Tickets during the extension week start at $55 each. Signature offers a wait-list option for all sold-out performances. Names will be taken at the Box Office starting one hour prior to curtain. Wait-list tickets through Dec. 15 are $25, subject to availability.
Subscriptions to Signature Theatre and tickets to individual productions can be purchased by calling the Signature Theatre Box Office at (212) 244-7529 or by visiting signaturetheatre.org.
