Loosely based on the real-life experiences of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight world champion, The Royale tells the fictional story of Jay "The Sport" Johnson (Davis).

Guests at the opening-night festivities included Josh Groban, who will make his Broadway debut in Rachel Chavkin's production of Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.

In the play, it's 1905 and as Johnson faces his opponents — and confronts his demons — he exposes the troublesome events in his life that have propelled him into the ring.

Steven Pasquale and Phillipa Soo are on hand for the opening of The Royale.
