Time Out says

Samuel L. Jackson, Danielle Brooks and John David Washington lead the cast of August Wilson's family drama about an upright piano freighted with tragic history. The play, which earned Wilson his second Pulitzer Prize in 1990, is set in Pittsburgh's Hill District in the 1930s, and is part of the playwright's ten-part, decade-by-decade survey of the African-American experience in the 20th century. LaTanya Richardson Jackson directs the show's first Broadway revival.
