Reviews of The Piano Lesson

Overall customer rating: 4.500
1943dot

the piano was the lesson

by 1943dot on Dec 9, 2010

Whereas this may not be August Wilson's best remembered play, it has a lot to say. While not perfect in its construction or its references, it is strong in characterizations and language. I have never seen this play staged but have read it outloud in a play-reading: it is both powerful and compelling.
