Respected film director Spike Lee (with his wife Tonya) and comedian-turned-actor Chris Rock (with his wife Malaak) were among the entertainment industry glitterati attending the April 7 opening night performance of Topdog/Underdog.

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. Suzan-Lori Parks won the Pulitzer Prize for Topdog/Underdog.
