Tony Award winner Chuck Cooper, who can currently be seen on Broadway in Romeo and Juliet, celebrates his birthday Nov. 8. To mark the occasion, the Playbill Vault looks back at his Broadway career.
Cooper made his Broadway debut as Brother Boxer in the musical Amen Corner, based on the play of the same name by James Baldwin. It told the story of a female Harlem pastor struggling to keep her life and her rebellious congregation together.
The production opened on Nov. 10, 1983, at the Nederlander Theatre and ran for 28 performances.
