Congrats to Tony Winners

Congratulations to Viola Davis and Denzel Washington, winners of Best Actress and Best Actor in leading roles for August Wilson's Fences, which itself won for best play revival. It was also a good night for Arthur Miller, rock & roll and movie stars. Congrats to all the winners.

Here's a review of the New York Fences production. And speaking of August Wilson, a review of this spring's re-staging of Wilson's Jitney in Pittsburgh. The last production there was one of the last times I saw August Wilson--he was in town to do some rewrites of this play, his actual first. Then we saw him again after opening night. Both plays are set in Pittsburgh, as are all but one of his 10 play cycle.
