Quick review of “Seven Guitars” by People’s Light and Theatre

By Mike Downing

I went to see August Wilson’s “Seven Guitars” last night at People’s Light and Theatre in Malvern (outside Philly).  It was excellent.  The set was awesome, the acting was great, the music and direction were all on the money.  The actors wore Wilson’s words like a second skin and the script was treated with respect and understanding.  Great work.  The show runs through October 7.  Get down there, if you can.


Slide Show: The Life and Work of August Wilson by Dr. Michael Downing

Several people have asked me to post this slide show again, so here it is.

It is an educational slide show for teachers to use in the classroom, for students to use as a primer on August Wilson, or for anyone interested.
