ByGoodman Theater Mike Downing

The Chicago Reader has posted an interview with Willa Taylor, the Goodman Theater’s director of education and community engagement.  Of Wilson’s plays, she said that Two Trains is her favorite, “because of the time period.”

She said the Goodman Theater is trying to make sure August Wilson’s work “gets taught in schools the way kids study Tennessee Williams, Eugene O’Neill, and Shakespeare.”

Two Trains Running at the Goodman Theatre runs through 4/19: Wed-Thu 7:30 PM, Fri-Sat 8 PM, Sun 2 and 7:30 PM $25-$79.
