American Son New York TicketsAward-winning actress, Kerry Washington, makes her return to Broadway in the hit stage show American Son. Washington is the mother of a teenage son who is missing and finds herself in a police station late one night pleading to officers for help. When her husband arrives, a story begins to unfold that deals with issues like love and race. The show also examines the role of the family in shaping identity and the consequences of a loss of identity. Washington is joined on stage by American Crime Story star, Steven Pasquale. Jeremy Jordan of Supergirl fame and Eugene Lee Gem of the Ocean's also contribute their talents to the production.
A Night of AgonyAmerican Son opens in the lobby of a police station in the middle of a rainy night. Kendra is the first character introduced to the audience, and she is losing her mind with panic while trying to explain to a police officer that her son has been away from home too long, and she knows something is not right. Officer Larkin further excites the frightened mother by alternating between openly withholding information from her and attempting to calm her down by making a number of condescending statements. The tension soared through the roof when Larkin asked Kendra if her black son, Jamaal, had tattoos and a "street name." Kendra's estranged husband, Scott, soon enters the scene. Scott is white and an FBI agent. He is also treated with much more respect by Officer Larkin than Kendra enjoyed. Kendra and Scott argue while waiting to hear where their son is and what has happened to him. The tension continues to rise when a second police officer enters the scene. The ending is sure to leave many theatergoers in tears. The Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, Mass., first brought American Son to the stage in 2016. The play made its Broadway debut on Nov. 4, 2018.
