The Signature Theatre’s staging of Athol Fugard’s “Master Harold” … and the Boys officially opened November 7; the South African tale of life during apartheid debuted on Broadway in 1982 and was nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Play and Best Direction for Fugard. The Off-Broadway revival is also directed by Fugard and stars Leon Addison Brown (The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek), Tony nominee Sahr Ngaujah (FELA!), and Noah Robbins (Grease Live!).
The Signature staging began performances October 18 at The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center. Read reviews below:
“Master Harold” … and the Boys takes place inside a small tea shop occupied by two black men and a young white boy. “[They] joke and dance together, defying the brutalities of apartheid through their joyous love,” state production notes. “But festering issues of family, race, and power are not so easy to ignore, and a single phone call can trigger catastrophe.”
