BWW Review: KING JAMES at Center Theatre Group Photo BWW Review: KING JAMES at Center Theatre Group
by Andrew Child - Jun 14, 2022

What did our critic think? Joseph has woven an intricate veil of social commentary which haunts the two characters. King James might be a play about a Black man finding a way to advocate for himself, a white man figuring out how his access to wealth has affected him, or two friends navigating the terrors of adulthood.

The next show at the Mark Taper Forum, Rajiv Joseph’s King James world premieres June 8, 2022 (with previews starting June 1st). Kenny Leon directs this co-production of Center Theatre Group and Steppenwolf Theatre Company starring Glenn Davis and Chris Perfetti. Glenn took some time to answer a few of my queries on King James, being co-artistic director at Steppenwolf Theatre and working with a one-of-a-kind co-star.

KING JAMES is a platonic male love story — and Rajiv Joseph’s world premiere play at Steppenwolf is one slam dunk of a bromance.

STAGE TUBE: All About Roundabout's SONS OF THE PROPHET!
by BroadwayWorld TV - Oct 17, 2011

If to live is to suffer, then Joseph Douaihy (Fontana) is more alive than most. With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph's health, sanity, and insurance premium are on the line. In an age when modern medicine has a cure for just about everything, Sons of the Prophet is a refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal, and the funniest play about human suffering you're likely to see. Hear what the cast and creative team have to say about this new production below!
