August Wilson's American Century Cycle

For the first time ever, The August Wilson Estate has granted an organization the rights to record Wilson’s entire American Century Cycle. Lincoln and The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR presented live dramatic readings of all 10 plays in front of a live studio audience and record them for generations to come...and I had the awesome opportunity to attend one of them.

Thanks to the Lincoln Motor Company, signature sponsor for the project, I was able to meet and sit in the room with some of the most inspiring people in the business as well as someone who's style I've followed and loved for years. 

Ruben Santiago-Huston (Artistic Director)

The lovely, elegant and beautiful spirit...Phylicia Rashad. I could have listened to her speak for hours and I felt honored to sit across the table from her.

There are times when style reaches a totally different level, this is one of them.

The staging was beautiful, the cast amazing and my experience...unparalleled.
