Ma Rainey's Black Bottom @ The Kennedy Center

My season tickets included attending one of August Wilson's 20th Century staged readings and I chose this one because of my love for the blues. I must admit that I did not know much about August Wilson or his plays and I feel the poorer for it. After attending this performance, I wished I had opted to see all ten of the productions because this one was just that good. The actors really sank their teeth in to their roles and brought the 1920s to life right before my eyes. I highly recommend checking out any one of these plays should you be lucky enough to get tickets.
