Broadway In Chicago is excited to join Congo Square Theatre Company in announcing its continued 25th Anniversary celebration with the Chicago premiere of HOW I LEARNED WHAT I LEARNED, August Wilson’s autobiographical show. Directed by Ken-Matt Martin and featuring Chicago’s own Harry Lennix, this limited engagement will run from April 20 – May 5, 2024 at Broadway In Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E. Chestnut St).

HOW I LEARNED WHAT I LEARNED follows Wilson’s journey as a young Black writer from Pittsburgh to one of the most celebrated American playwrights of the 20th century. Written three years before his death, the one-man show recounts numerous stories from the author’s long career and the lessons they taught about what it means to be a Black artist in America.
