Jitney is set in 1977 Pittsburgh in a makeshift storefront depot for gypsy cab drivers. The men share stories and gossip, two young lovers fight for their future, and the station owner confronts his long-estranged son.

“August Wilson is one of the world’s most celebrated playwrights. This is a director’s dream, to helm a production filled with such a stellar cast of theater veterans and distinguished Broadway actors,” says Santiago-Hudson, who won a Tony for his performance in Wilson’s Seven Guitars and made his directorial debut with a production of Wilson’s Gem of the Ocean for McCarter Theatre, Princeton.
