True Colors Theatre Company is proud to announce the Atlanta Premiere of August Wilson's final work, his auto-biographical one-man show, How I Learned What I Learned starring Eugene Lee (Miss Evers Boys, Fences).
Co-conceived and directed by Wilson's long time collaborator, Todd Kreidler, How I Learned What I Learned will run from October 7 - November 2, 2014 at Fulton County's Southwest Arts Centerlocated at 915 New Hope Road, Atlanta, GA 30331.
The auto-biographical reenactment of Wilson's life will be told in a one man show starring Eugene Lee (The Women of Brewster Place). How I Learned What I Learned, originally performed by the playwright himself at Seattle Rep in 2003, is Wilson's life through a monologue that shares a glimpse into where the characters in Wilson's critically acclaimed Century Cycle came from, as his stories wander down the streets of Pittsburgh's Hill District, the setting for nine of the ten plays in the cycle.
The life and upbringing of the two time Pulitzer Prize winner is exposed though his anecdotal stories and we see how his neighborhood and the politics, history, and personalities infused throughout this neighborhood influenced his world view long before the pen met the paper.
Part history, part art, and all storytelling, this one man show is not to be missed

Antonio ShalemFloor Manager/ Cashier at Kilwin's Chocolates Franchise, Inc. “I have had the priviledge of working with Mr. Hill at an Arts Festival in Atlanta. At that time, Keith's capacity was that of Volunteer Coordinator of The N.B.A.F. Keith showed exemplary skill in organizing the team of volunteers. In fact, the five-day festival ran quite smoothly as a result of his leadership. There were a number of positive comments made about our presence there. I recommend Mr. Hill as a fine liason between artistic and entertainment venues in the City He has a wide angle on venues taking place in Atlanta. It was a pleasure to work with someone of his character. As an entreprenuer, I can identify with Keith's sound work ethic”
