    Topdog/Underdog on Broadway Tickets

    Corey Hawkins and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II star in a revival of Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play.

    A Pulitzer-winning story of brotherhood

    Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Topdog/Underdog returns to Broadway on its 20th anniversary, with Tony Award nominee Corey Hawkins starring as one of two brothers coming to terms with their past.

    This dark but humorous story follows brothers Lincoln and Booth - named as a joke by their father. The pair are linked not only by blood, but by an obsession with street con game “three-card monte”. As the game and their lives unfold, Booth and Lincoln must confront the ghosts and true nature of their pasts.

    Suzan-Lori Parks’ Topdog/Underdog play is a Pulitzer Prize-winning work which first opened on Broadway in 2002. This anticipated revival is directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Soldier’s Play; American Son).

    The Topdog/Underdog Broadway cast includes Tony Award nominee Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton; Six Degrees of Separation) and Emmy Award winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen) as Lincoln and Booth.

    Still as powerful now as it was in the early 2000s, book Topdog/Underdog tickets for performances at the Golden Theatre.
