"As rich in religious feeling as in historical detail, Joe Turner is at once a teeming canvas of black America and a spiritual allegory with a Melville whammy . . . Joe Turner is flecked with hypnotic storytelling soliloquies as grittily redolent of itinerant America as those in The Iceman Cometh."--Frank Rich, The New York Times

"Has the haunting power of a ghost story . . . bold theatricality . . . electrifying."--The Washington Post

"August Wilson's best play!"--William A. Henry III, Time magazine

"Joe Turner's Come and Gone is one of the best American plays of the decade . . . he takes us through joy and disaster, hatred and love; he pulls few punches and in the end he has contributed not only to the stature of American playwrighting but to our understanding of our society. A rich, rewarding play, that rare work what entertains while it teaches."--The Providence Journal
