'Tearing Down the Walls' is at the ETA Creative Arts Foundation through Feb. 13.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of ETA Creative Arts Foundation. Over the decades, ETA has aimed to present, in their words, "Valid projections of African American lifestyles, experiences and aspirations." The company also provides a platform for emerging playwrights and new productions.

The new play "Tearing Down the Walls" hits all these points. Set in Bronzeville, the walls of the title are both physical and emotional.

"Eight Forty-Eight’s" Dueling Critics, Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman, joined host Alison Cuddy to discuss the production.
