Tarell is such a talented writer. Thank you for spotlighting this amazing guy and the art of playwriting. The theater community seems so bent on putting some new feet into August Wilson's vacant shoes, and while that would be a fine pair of souls for any dramatist to strut, Tarell has a unique and extraordinary voice all his own. While there is a certain, sad quietness since August's passing, there is by no means a void that needs to be filled. The African American voice is rich and strong on our stages - thanks to artists like Suzan-Lori Parks, Lynn Nottage, and the young and vibrant Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. August Wilson was an inspiration to all playwrights and left a massive gift of art for the world. And while the dramatists' path is more worn and clear for all of us by the wondrous tread of August Wilson, I think that Mr. McCraney needs no assistance whatsoever in the shoe department.
