Purlie Victorious: A Non-Confederate Romp Through the Cotton Patch

About This Show

Leslie Odom Jr. returns to Broadway for the first time since his Tony Award-winning performance in Hamilton. Purlie Victorious: A Non-Confederate Romp Through the Cotton Patch is the rousing, laugh-filled comedy by Kennedy Center honoree Ossie Davis that tells the story of a Black preacher’s machinations to reclaim his inheritance and win back his church. Directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun, Fences, Topdog/Underdog), this inspiring and delightful comedic masterpiece became the source material for the beloved hit musical Purlie.
