The Piano Lesson tickets
August Wilson’s masterwork returns to BroadwaySamuel L. Jackson leads a star-studded revival of August Wilson’s masterful and intimate play about family legacy on Broadway. The Pulitzer Prize-winning The Piano Lesson runs for a strictly limited season at the St. James Theatre.
At the center of the Charles household, a piano triggers a family battle. A brother wants to sell this prized heirloom and build his family’s fortune, but his sister is determined to keep it - and the family’s history - intact. Stuck in the middle is their uncle, and the ever-present ghosts of the past.
Asking questions about how we perceive the past and our family legacies, The Piano Lesson play is part of August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle, which explores the lives and experiences of the African-American community across the 20th century. Other plays in the Cycle include Fences and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
The Piano Lesson Broadway cast is led by Samuel L. Jackson as Doaker Charles, John David Washinton as Boy Willie, and Danielle Brooks as Berniece. LaTanya Richardson Jackson directs.
