George C. Wolfe: At Home on Broadway

October 20, 2019 @ 3:30 pm

Playwright George C. Wolfe, the iconic Broadway writer and director from Frankfort, will be honored by the Capital City Museum for his achievements in theater.

It’s said that a prophet is not without honor except in his hometown. But George C. Wolfe, whose prophetic work as a playwright and Tony Award-winning director of Broadway productions such as “Angels in America” and “Jelly’s Last Jam” in the 1990s set a standard that has awed and inspired American theater artists ever since, will break that mold this fall.

Wolfe, 64, who attended public schools and Kentucky State University in Frankfort and continues to work steadily on Broadway — he’s nominated for another Tony Award this Sunday for directing “Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus” — will be honored by the Capital City Museum on Oct. 20 celebrating his achievements in the theater.
