Emmy-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andre Braugher and his wife, Homicide: Life on the Street cast member Ami Brabson, will present the New York premiere of Oni Faida Lampley's Tough Titty at the Paradise Factory. Running from April 23-May 11, the semiautobiographical drama by the late playwright Lampley is directed by Lydia Fort.
