TOPDOG/UNDERDOG BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: April 7, 2002
Synopsis: Suzan-Lori Parks arrives on Broadway with her darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity. Topdog/Underdog tells the story of two brothers, Lincoln and Booth, 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. George C. Wolfe directs this production, which stars Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Do you find yourself feeling limp and rundown when the curtain falls on a Broadway show? Are tapping chorines, roaring jungle creatures and naked movie stars just not doing the trick for you anymore? Then take a long drink of the tonic now available at the Ambassador Theater, where ''Topdog/Underdog'' jolted open last night. The two lonely, rowdy brothers who make up the entire cast of characters of Suzan-Lori Parks's thrilling comic drama give off more energy than the ensembles of ''42nd Street,'' ''The Lion King'' and ''The Graduate'' combined. And it's not just the kinetic joy and focus of Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def, the actors playing them, that makes the show so revitalizing.
