Photo Flash: First Look at Artists Rep's THE MOTHERF****** WITH THE HAT
Artists Rep presents the Northwest premiere of The Motherfucker With the Hat by Stephen Aldy Guirgis, now through March 30. This hard-hitting, comedic play premiered on Broadway in 2011 starring Chris Rock, making his Broadway debut as Ralph D. and was directed by Anna D. Shapiro. Kevin Jones will direct Artists Rep's production starring Victor Mack as Ralph D. The Broadway production was nominated for six Tony Awards, including Outstanding New Broadway Play, and is one of the most produced plays in the country. Check out a first look below!
Recovering addict Jackie, fresh out of jail, is determined to get straight and settle down in NYC with the support of his girl Veronica, his AA sponsor Ralph D., and his loyal cousin Julio until ... he finds a hat that isn't his own left conspicuously behind in his bedroom. His quest to track down the motherfucker with the hat threatens to put him right back where he started. Take a breakneck ride with this poetically profane, kick in the karmic cojones that becomes a raw, touching and thoroughly hilarious dive into the quest for transformation.
