Chuck Cooper Stars in "Two Trains Running" at Two River Theater
August Wilson wrote a ten-play cycle set in a black Pittsburgh neighborhood, one for each decade of the 20th century. Last year, Two River Theater in Red Bank mounted an acclaimed production of "Jitney," the 1970s play, directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson and starring Chuck Cooper. The two are both back this season for "Two Trains Running," set in the 1960s. Tony Award-winning actor Chuck Cooper talks to Susan Wallner about working with Ruben, the musicality of August Wilson's plays, and about meeting the famed playwright before his death in 2005. "Two Trains Running" runs February 2nd to March 3rd at Two River Theater Company.
