FAT HAM BROADWAY BENEFIT
April 25, 2023 Run Time: 95 minutes, no intermission
Don't miss your opportunity to celebrate FAT HAM's transfer to Broadway! Stay after the performance for a special post-show conversation with Public Theater Associate Artistic Director and Director of FAT HAM, Saheem Ali, and members of the cast.
FAT HAM, the deliciously funny, Pulitzer Prize-winning new play, comes to Broadway following a critically acclaimed, sold-out run right here at The Public Theater. Playwright James Ijames and Director Saheem Ali reinvent Shakespeare's masterpiece, creating what The New York Times calls “a hilarious yet profound tragedy smothered in comedy.”
Juicy is a queer, Southern college kid, already grappling with some serious questions of identity, when the ghost of his father shows up in their backyard, demanding that Juicy avenge his murder. But here's the rub! Revenge doesn't come easy to Juicy, a sensitive and self-aware young Black man in search of his own happiness and liberation. From an uproarious family cookout emerges a compelling examination of love and loss, pain and joy.
