Photo Coverage: Thurgood - Meet & Greet

On April 12th, 2008 the official press 'Meet and Greet' for the upcoming production of Thurgood  at the Booth Theatre starring Laurence Fishburne took place.

Hollywood star and Tony Award-winner, Laurence Fishburne returns to Broadway next to star in George Stevens Jr.'s new one-man play Thurgood, beginning a limited engagement at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th St) beginning previews April 12; officially opening on Sunday, April 30 with performances through July 20, 2008.

"Thurgood is the remarkable and triumphant story of Thurgood Marshall, who rose from a childhood in the backstreets of Baltimore to the Supreme Court of the United States. Along the way, Mr. Marshall overcame many adversities but through them all, remained focused and positive to maintain the great country he wanted to serve. And did. Thurgood brings to the stage the words, the wit, the tenacity and the wisdom of one of American's greatest heroes," explain press notes.
