• “Jitney” at the Pasadena Playhouse One Week Only


    By Winston Chua

    PASADENA – It is 1977 in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, a neighborhood that legitimate cabs will not travel to. Here, unlicensed gypsy cabs, jitneys, emerge to drive the locals around town.

    Here, August Wilson’s Jitney takes place to provide the backdrop for a host of dramatically-filled scenarios, where a motley crew of employees take part in fights, lovers’ quarrels, relationship squabbles and where modern viewers can get a glimpse of what life was like in the late 1970s.

    There are many stories at play in Jitney. Urban renewal threatens to tear down the station that is responsible for the employment of a group of cab drivers, a son and father reunite after 20 long years of separation to see what is left of their relationship, a man’s integrity is in question as rumors surface over his fidelity and much, much more.

    Colorful characters come to life right here in Pasadena for one more week only. The final show at the Playhouse takes place July 15.
