In this special master class, Ruben Santiago-Hudson will share insights and behind-the-scenes stories about his life and career as one of the American theater’s finest directors, playwrights and actors. A preeminent interpreter of the works of August Wilson, his Broadway credits include directing Jitney and acting in Seven Guitars (for which he won a Tony Award). At Two River—where he is directing this season’s production of Regina Taylor’s Oo-Bla-Dee—he has thrilled audiences with Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Jitney, and Two Trains Running, as well as his own world-premiere play Your Blues Ain’t Sweet Like Mine. He won an Obie Award and critical acclaim for his solo show Lackawanna Blues, and his screenplay for the HBO adaptation received the Humanitas Prize, Christopher Award, National Board of Review Honors, and NAACP Image Award.
