August Wilson Play---KING HEDLEY II CLOSED!!

 

August Wilson Play---KING HEDLEY II @ Arena Stage Theater

Arena Stage, 1101 Sixth Street, SW Washington, DC

Friday, March 6  8 PM

Fichandler Stage ($58)

Did you know?  King Hedley II marked the fifth and last time August Wilson would be a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  He is one of only seven American Playwrights to win multiple Pulitzer Prizes.

King Hedley has returned, but to reign for how long?  With an angry scar down the length of his face and seven years of prison haunting him, King has a chance to lock away his past and achieve an entrepreneurial dream. But Pittsburgh’s Hill District is an unforgiving place, and the return of Elmore, a scheming conman armed with a derringer and family secrets, could strike a fatal blow to King’s second coming. The eighth installment of August Wilson’s acclaimed play cycle examining Black America, King Hedley II is one of the most stirring and ferocious explorations of fate, honor and the daily struggles of American life.

Arena Stage has become a national center for the production, presentation, development and study of the American theater. Now in its sixth decade, Arena Stage serves a diverse annual audience of nearly 300,000.  The Fichandler Stage is an epic, four-sided auditorium, steeply raked seating tiers and bold, earthy exterior design.  It is ideally suited to large-scale classic dramas and musicals with state-of-the-art technical equipment; elegant new décor; acoustical improvements eliminate ambient noise and audience members are never more than eight rows away from the action.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL!!  All payments are due by NOVEMBER 30, 2014.  ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF TICKETS WILL BE SOLD!!  Please forward event information and payment instructions to your family & friends.  ACCESSIBLE BY METRO (GREEN LINE--Waterfront Stop) or street parking (meter).

    Friday…ALL PERFORMANCES ARE STILL ON!! Please check the Arena Stage website (or call for recorded message) for any updates on the day of the performance.

    I will be at the Café (inside Arena Stage) before the performance around 6:00 (time may vary depending upon weather and how fast I can find parking). The Catwalk Café is a friendly and casual self-service café located right inside the Mead Center.

    ALL TICKETS WILL BE LEFT AT THE BOX OFFICE BETWEEN 6:30 AND 6:45 tomorrow. Your ticket will be left under the first/last name on your Paypal account.

    PARKING ANNOUNCEMENT….due to extensive ongoing construction at the Waterfront area, patrons are strongly encouraged to allow extra time when traveling to Arena Stage. Street parking and travel times will be affected on an on-going basis as this large construction project transforms our Southwest neighborhood.
