Actors Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def flank director George C. Wolfe and playwright Suzan-Lori Parks as the quartet take their opening night bow April 7 at the Ambassador Theatre.

Topdog/Underdog, which premiered at the Public Theater in July before moving to Broadway, is a two-man show about a pair of mismatched brothers, Lincoln and Booth (named for, yes, that Lincoln and that Booth). Lincoln spends his days as a white-face impersonator of the 16th president, while Booth shoplifts suits and expensive champagne. The two strive for a family unity they have never had, but end up battling to death. Parks won the Pulitzer Prize for Topdog/Underdog.
