Thurgood starring Laurence Fishburne Summary

Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne brings one of America’s greatest heroes to life in George Stevens, Jr.'s powerful new play. Fishburne's performances have been deemed "brilliant," "riveting" and "electrifying" by The New York Times. Now he portrays Thurgood Marshall, the grandson of a slave who became our first African-American Supreme Court Justice. Thurgood is his remarkable story, a triumph of courage - not just for the man, but for the nation he bravely challenged and proudly served. Don’t miss this strictly limited engagement!
