Seattle Repertory Theater's productions of acclaimed American playwright, August Wilson's works garnered much praise during his residency. Wilson spent the last 15 years of his life here in Seattle, and passed away at age 60 from liver cancer at Swedish Hospital in 2005. The portion of Republican Street that dead-ends into the Seattle Center campus on the west has been renamed August Wilson Way, and this is the entrance to that path.
