What our audiences are saying:

“Just saw Two Trains Running at PassinArt and wow! Great work- people please support this wonderful group of artists and this brilliant play by the late great August Wilson- one of the top ten best playwrights in American history.... Don't miss it!”  — Brenda H.

“...so impressed with huge talent on that small stage. I've offered tickets to my colleagues”  — Beth H.

“When we walked in we were impressed by the beautiful set which was only the beginning of a magnificent presentation. We have seen this before and knew what to expect. However, this gut wrenching story of the 60's life in black Pittsburgh's Hill District, was the best we have seen... Go and see this because you won't have a better opportunity to see this powerful piece.”  — Leonard M.

“Director William Earl Ray’s PassinArt actors play the thing a bit like a good blues band, delivering their lines in an array of timbres, tones, and speeds, from the quizzical uptick of veteran Wrick Jones’s Memphis to the mirthful jangle of Kenneth Dembo’s bookie Wolf to the deliberative modulations of Jerry Foster’s undertaker/real-estate player West...”  — Bob Hicks, Oregon Artwatch
