On Thursday, October 20, 2022, was opening and the 20th anniversary of the Suzan Lori Parkes Tony award winning show TopDog/UnderDog. This time actors Yahya Abdul-Mateen and Corey Hawkins play the lead roles.
As theatergoers may know, TOPDOG/UNDERDOG is 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. The two are very haunted by the past and their obsession with the street con game, three-card monte. As the story unfolds, the brothers come to learn the true nature of their history.
