WINNER! Tony Award® for Best Revival of a Play


Abdul-Mateen II

Directed By

Kenny Leon


Suzan-Lori Parks’ 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.

Hilarious, harrowing and superbly acted. We need Topdog/Underdog — right now.

Shattering. Ferociously of the moment.

Peter MarksThe Washington Post

It’s a theatrical event that demands to be seen here and now.

It’s tough, it’s gritty, it’s beautiful, it’s poetry and it’s pretty damn funny.
