Theatrical Events

Radio Golf

When: Feb. 16-March 4 2012

Cleveland knows a thing or two about the precarious balance between gain and loss that can make urban development so dicey. Radio Golf, August Wilson’s Tony Award-nominated drama and the finale of his 10-play cycle chronicling the 20th century African-American experience, is set in a crime-ridden Pittsburgh neighborhood in 1997 that could just as well be the East Side of C-Town. The plot pits the price of progress against the value of heritage — all through the eyes of a young, ambitious black politician eager to be mayor. James Craven stars in this production by Cleveland Play House; actor, educator, and scholar Lou Bellamy directs. Performances happen daily (except February 20 and 27) at the Allen Theatre.

Price: Tickets are $49 to $69, or $15 for students, available at 216-241-6000 or clevelandplayhouse.com
