Thurgood at The Geffen Playhouse
Thurgood starring Laurence Fishburne starts at The Geffen Playhouse tomorrow, June 27 and runs through August 8th. I've already got my tickets, and I suggest if you want to see it you get yours immediately. I tried to change my tickets the other day and found out that much of the dates are already sold out, and those that aren't sold out have very few seats left. So act fast.
Here's the synopsis:
Witness one of America’s greatest stories told from the stage by one of our greatest story tellers. Tony Award Winner, Emmy Award Winner and Oscar Nominee Laurence Fishburne transforms into Thurgood Marshall to tell the triumphant story of how a boy from the backstreets of Baltimore changed history. From arguing the 1954 landmark case Brown v. Board of Education to becoming the first African-American Supreme Court justice, Thurgood Marshall’s tenacious advocacy broke open the civil rights movement, paving the way for the young African-American leaders of our future. Fishburne’s acclaimed Broadway performance of Thurgood earned him a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, as well as a Tony nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play.
