In my years as a journalist, I’ve interviewed a great many interesting personalities. I’ll be posting clips from some of my interviews up here.

August Wilson

While working as a theater critic for the Chicago Reader, I had several chances to interview one of my favorite playwrights. I first encountered Wilson’s work when I was in college in New York and attended a preview performance of Joe Turner’s Come and Gone. Here are two clips of him—the first from when he was premiering The Piano Lesson, the second during rehearsals for Seven Guitars.
