Kerry Washington gives the performance of the season in American Son, the high-voltage, suspenseful drama, now on Broadway through January 27 only.

American Son is a riveting story about who we are as a nation, and how we deal with family relationships, love, loss, and identity. As the Today Show says, “it is a gripping, beautiful, beautiful play.”
