Take Me Out - 2003 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

A home run Broadway hit, Ruchard Greenberg's witty, passionate and patriotic look at the "great American pasttime" sneaks a peak into that most exclusive of boys' clubs: the locker room of a major league ball team. When the NY Empires' star player comes out to the press with a closely held secret, assumptions are challenged, tradition is upended, friendships are tested, and the question of what it is to be American is explored in a naked and unflinchingly honest way.

Running Time:

Two hours and 30 minutes with one intermission

The feelings and attachments of men, whether gay or straight, as they fight for self-respect and survival in a harsh world are portrayed in playwright Katori Hall’s Pulitzer-Prize winning play The Hot Wing King. The compromises, commitments, camaraderie, and fractious relationships of a non-traditional family are explored with immediacy and sophisticated insight by Ms. Hall. Like all superbly written plays, one is continually taken by surprise as the play develops and nothing is as expected. The writing here is on the caliber of playwrights Annie Baker or August Wilson.
