Review On AUGUST WILSON'S JITNEY

Each scene is a gem in its own way, some filled with warm humor, some with pointed social commentary. But the scenes featuring Jones as the rightfully self-righteous father and Battiste as the rightfully self-protective son are exquisite. Ramrod-straight Jones and respectfully constrained Battiste seem to do so little in those moments, yet they produce powerful emotions in us.
