Topdog/Underdog


Topdog/Underdog, Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, returns to Broadway for its 20th Anniversary Production.

This all-new production stars Tony Award® nominee Corey Hawkins (In the Heights, The Tragedy of Macbeth) and Emmy® Award winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen (Watchmen, Candyman), and is directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun).

Topdog/Underdog, a darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity, tells the story of two brothers, Lincoln (Hawkins) and Booth (Abdul-Mateen II), names given to them as a joke by their father. Haunted by the past and their obsession with the street con game, three-card monte, the brothers come to learn the true nature of their history.

“The Greatest American Play of the Past 25 Years” – The New York Times

Topdog/Underdog is as exciting as any new play from a young American since Tony Kushner’s Angels in America. Both a vivid, present-tense family portrait and an endlessly reverberating allegory, Topdog/Underdog plies the fine theatrical art of deception to convey the dangers of role-playing in a society in which race is a performance and prison.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
