"Universes" Take "UniSon" To The Stage In Ashland

Oregon Shakespeare Festival
/

The work of August Wilson has been staged on plays around the world. 

But his poetry takes center stage in a new work at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival called "UniSon."  It is a musical based on Wilson's work and shaped by the OSF company-within-the-company called Universes

They wrote and performed "Party People" at the festival a few years back, and that's when we first got to know Steven Sapp, Mildred Ruiz-Sapp, and William Ruiz, who goes by "Ninja."  They return to our studio to talk about the work in THEIR studio that led to "UniSon."
