Kerry Washington and More on the Trials and Rewards of Bringing American Son to Broadway

Washington and costars Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan, and Eugene Lee celebrate opening night.

Christopher Demos-Brown's new play American Son follows two parents who find themselves caught in our national divide, with their worst fears hanging in the balance. Starring Kerry Washington, Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan, and Eugene Lee, the work opened on Broadway on November 4, under the direction of Kenny Leon. As the cast and creative team arrived at their opening-night party, we asked them questions from the evening's guests and found out everything from the details of the team's push-up habits to their reasons for taking on this emotionally demanding play.
