The Piano Lesson 

When: Sat., March 3 and Sun., March 4 2012
Phone: 440-949-5200
Price: $12.50 to $15
The playwright is August Wilson, the setting is Pittsburgh, and the subject is the tension between legacy and progress. If you guessed we’re talking about Radio Golf, currently on view at the Cleveland Play House, you lose. This time we’re pointing you toward The Piano Lesson, now in its final days at the French Creek Nature Center in Sheffield. As savvy theater buffs will tell you, The Piano Lesson, like Radio Golf, is part of Wilson’s 10-play cycle exploring the African-American experience. This one is set in the 1930s, in the aftermath of the Great Depression, and follows a family trying to decide what to do with a symbol-laden, heirloom piano. Presented by TrueNorth Cultural Arts, directed by Cleveland Arts Prize-winning playwright Michael Oatman, and fully staged with professional-quality lighting, sound, and costumes, performances continue through Sunday, March 4. Tonight’s curtain is at 7:30. Tickets are $12.50 in advance by phone or online, or $15 on show day.
