Placing poetic 'Gem of the Ocean' in its Everyman setting

The Baltimore Sun

Jennifer L. Nelson is an award-winning poet and a playwright. She has a natural affinity for August Wilson, a dramatist so painstaking that even his stage directions -- which never are meant to be read aloud -- exhibit the imagery and cadences of fine verse.

Staging Wilson's Gem of the Ocean for Everyman Theatre is taking everything that Nelson's got to give. And she couldn't be happier.

Performances

A full production of "Gem of the Ocean" runs from March 19-April 27 at Everyman Theatre, 1727 N. Charles St., . $16-$35. 410-752-2208 or www.everymantheatre.org.
