Jitney on Broadway
August Wilson’s Jitney, the only one of the author’s plays not previously performed on Broadway, will be coming to the Great White Way this winter. The play is set in the early 1970s and tells the story of a group of men who are trying to make a living by driving jitneys, or unlicensed cabs. The city threatens to shut down the business, and the boss’s son returns after a stint in prison. Emotions rise to the surface and secrets are revealed, threatening to tear the characters apart.
