The Piano Lesson


August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork The Piano Lesson returns to Broadway in the event of the season, starring Academy Award® winner Samuel L. Jackson, Screen Actors Guild Award® nominee John David Washington, and Tony® and Emmy® nominee Danielle Brooks, directed by Tony® nominee La Tanya Richardson Jackson.

A battle is brewing in the Charles household. At the center lies the family's prized heirloom piano. On one side, a brother plans to build the family fortune by selling it. On the other, a sister will go to any length to keep it and preserve the family history. Only their uncle stands in between. But even he can't hold back the ghosts of the past.

The Piano Lesson is the play for now. It reaches into the souls of the present, revealing startling truths about how we perceive our past-and who gets to define our legacy.
