  Jitney at Mark Taper Forum


Mark Taper Forum
135 North Grand Ave. Los Angeles

In 2017, Jitney became the final play in two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilsonís masterful The American Century Cycle to be seen on Broadway. Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured play follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city of Pittsburgh threatens to board up the business and the bossí son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed, and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawanna Blues), one of Wilsonís finest interpreters, this acclaimed production of Jitney received six Tony nominations, winning Best Revival of a Play, and winning the 2017 Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Revival of a Play.
