Rapper and actor Mos Def stars in Topdog/Underdog by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks. The two-man drama opened at the Ambassador Theatre April 7.

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.
