The 20th anniversary revival production of Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks began Broadway previews September 27 at the Golden Theatre. The limited engagement officially opens October 20 and will run through January 15, 2023. See stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Tony nominee Corey Hawkins take their first bows below. The evening marked Abdul-Mateen's Broadway debut.

Helmed by Tony winner Kenny Leon, who will also direct this season's premiere of Ohio State Murders, Topdog/Underdog is a story of sibling rivalry and brotherly love centering on two brothers named Lincoln and Booth by their father as a joke.

The creative team includes scenic designer Arnulfo Maldonado, costume designer Dede Ayite, lighting designer Allen Lee Hughes, and sound designer Justin Ellington. Casting is by Calleri Jensen Davis, and Kamra Jacobs is the production stage manager. The production is being produced by David Stone, LaChanze, Rashad V. Chambers, Marc Platt, Debra Martin Chase, and the Shubert Organization.
