Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.

August Wilson, the iconic African American playwright (1945-2005) who chronicled each decade of Pittsburgh's Hill District during the 20th century, at long last has a cultural center and museum worthy of his name.

It only took two decades.

This stunning non-profit facility is a multi-disciplinary public arts center open to the public. Wear comfortable shoes. It's one in which you'll want to linger, soak up the visceral vibe. Tragedy and nobility swim in the air through dramatic scenes from movies and Broadway productions.

Stroll leisurely throughout the exhibits. Imagine what Wilson must have internalized to create such masterpieces, from, "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom." to "Fences," starring Denzel Washington. Look hard because it's a pearl of a spread, touching on the tragic history of all Americans complicit in the systemic racism of the African American experience.

Listen to the gritty snippets of plays in the ether, grabbing you by the throat with passion, haunting humor and grace.

Breathe in the worn vinyl seats at the booth in a site reminiscent of Wilson's haunts. learn from the master who knew from racism. Resist the urge to take a seat. Trust me, it's very tempting. Enlarged photos of the poet/playwright. dance on the walls Captioned with his pithy words of ingrained wisdom.

How did this vision materialize?

Twenty years ago, a small number of Pittsburgh community leaders envisioned a singular cultural arts facility positioned in the Cultural District of the metropolis. Not merely for local enterprising artists, a goal was to offer a national showplace for art, music, theater, literature and African American history. Most significantly, it was to shine a. beacon on the genius that is the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Pittsburgh luminary, August Wilson,

In full disclosure, I'm a fangirl. And had the pleasure of interviewing Wilson when his play, "Seven Guitars" debuted on Broadway. It was a thrill I've never forgotten.

If ever you have an opportunity to check out this outstanding attraction, just do it!

Well worth a visit. Very low key. A respectful docent led tour that highlights the August Wilson "American Century Cycle" plays. Plus the building is gorgeous. PS: It's free.

If you are a fan of August Wilson’s Century Cycle this is a must visit. It has an art exhibit, but the real attraction is the rooms, each dedicated to one of the plays in the Cycle. Each room contains objects, pictures, and information relevant to one of the plays. It is wonderful.

I went to the August Wilson Center for a learning laboratory (work event). This place is a must see for anyone interested in arts and culture who is in Pittsburgh. The site is user friendly, the gallery exhibits are generally open to the public for free. It is worth the time. The Center is near the theater district, and there are places to eat nearby.

A multifaceted space where you can see amazing art by local, national and international artists. Great performance venue for dance, theater and concerts. They have started a brunch series on Sundays. It is a bustling space where you may see a DJ spinning, go to an artist talk or see a great concert. If you’re visiting Pittsburgh or if you’re a resident - be sure to check to see what is happening at the August Wilson Center. A gem!

The August Wilson Theatre is beautiful and everyone there was very friendly. They have the coolest donator wall I've ever seen - it's a work of art. The seats were comfortable and the theatre was well designed.

The only down sides are that they didn't get the floors of the main floor done well. They look like they were painted and horribly sealed. They're a wreck in the areas where people walk the most. If you don't look down, it's beautiful.

Everyone there was SUPER friendly, but it was really annoying when people were being seated in your row. Almost every time someone was being seated in our row, the usher shouted REALLY LOUDLY that someone was coming in the row (leading us all to discuss whether these people were incapable of saying "excuse me" on their own or if the usher just liked to shout). It was very strange. I've been to tons of theatres from Broadway to local theatre and never had an experience quite like that when people were being seated.

The August Wilson Center (AWC), located in the Cultural District, offers free admission. to the public. The contemporary open design of the glass and stone facility is inviting. My family and I visited Tarish Pipkins' ARTivism community mural - celebrating the legacy of August Wilson. On the first floor is the BNY Mellon Gallery, where we viewed the Funky Turns 40: Black Character Revolution exhibit. We enjoyed viewing the curated collection of 60 original animation production cels and drawings of 1970s Black comic book superheroes, villains, and animated characters featured in Saturday morning cartoons. These Black cartoon characters included Fat Albert, the Harlem Globetrotters, the Jackson 5, Space Sentinels' Astrea, Superstretch and Microwoman, and the Black Vulcan. The stately granite staircase leads up stairs to the Claude Worthington Benedum Gallery, which featured Robert Hodge's experimental assemblages and hip hop themed collages. I adore contemporary lines of the facility. I plan to visit again to experience live performances in the 492-seat theater.

I decided to visit the museum for my Birthday this past Saturday, March 22. I traveled from northeast Ohio with 4 adults and one child. I checked online an saw the museum closes at 6pm. After hours of driving we finally get to hectic downtown Pittsburgh, struggle to find parking, and walk all the way to the museum on to pull on LOCKED door handles! We paid 7 dollars to park for 5 minutes! The whole trip was planned around this visit and our plans were quickly derailed. I made sure to look at the website and I did not see any indication that it would not be open. Anyone looking to visit, please call and check timing! I could have saved myself the drive and emotions this musems cost me.
