Cicely Tyson, Billy Porter, and More Join Blair Underwood at Soldier's Play Opening
The new Broadway revival of Charles Fuller's A Soldier's Play celebrated its opening night at Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre on January 21.
Directed by Kenny Leon, the cast of A Soldier's Play features Jerry O'Connell, Blair Underwood, David Alan Grier, and Nnamdi Asomugha. They are joined by McKinley Belcher III, Rob Demery, Jared Grimes, Billy Eugene Jones, Nate Mann, Warner Miller, J. Alphonse Nicholson, and Lee Aaron Rosen.
The story is described as follows: "1944. A Louisiana Army base. A sergeant is murdered — and the crime, with its masterfully unfolded investigation, triggers a gripping barrage of questions about sacrifice, service, and identity in America."
The design team includes Derek McLane (sets), Dede Ayite (costumes), Allen Lee Hughes (lights), Dan Moses Schreier (sound).
