Marking the Broadway debut of playwright Christopher Demos-Brown, American Son is directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun, Fences).“Christopher Demos-Brown has written a play that dives deep into the big questions of who we are as a nation, by exploring the intimate relationships within a family caught at the crossroads of love, loss, identity and community,” says star Kerry Washington. “After reading the script I was immediately enthralled by the world of the play and the gripping circumstances that these characters are facing. I am excited to step into the ring with Kenny & Steve to tell this story on Broadway.”
