Take a Look at Billy Porter-Directed Topdog/Underdog
Matthew J. Harris and Tyrone Mitchell Henderson star in Suzan-Lori Parks play, now in performance at Hunting Theatre Company.
The Billy Porter-directed production of Suzan-Lori Parks Pulitzer Prize-winning Topdog/Underdog, currently in performances at Boston University Theatre, the Huntington's mainstage on the Avenue of the Arts, has released its first production photos. Performances of the drama continue through March 9.
In Topdog/Underdog, Lincoln (Tyrone Mitchell Henderson) and Booth (Matthew J. Harris) are brothers, best friends, and bitter rivals. Lincoln, a former 3-card monte hustler, works as a Lincoln impersonator in a shooting gallery; Booth is an aspiring grifter. He tempts his brother to get back in the game, but the consequences could be deadly.
The production team includes Clint Ramos (scenic and costume design), Driscoll Otto (lighting design), and Leon Rothenberg (sound design). Emily F. McMullen is the production stage manager and Kevin Schlagle is the stage manager.
