Kerry Washington & Steven Pasquale to Return to Broadway in 'American Son'

Kerry Washington will be making her return to Broadway in the new play American Son alongside theater veteran Steven Pasquale!

The show will be directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon and it is written by Christopher Demos-Brown.

Here is the synopsis: Do you know where your children are? A Florida police station in the middle of the night; a mother searching for her missing teenage son. American Son is a gripping tale of two parents caught in our national divide, with their worst fears hanging in the balance.

Christopher Demos-Brown has written a play that dives deep into the big questions of who we are as a nation, by exploring the intimate relationships within a family caught at the crossroads of love, loss, identity and community,” Kerry said in a statement. “After reading the script I was immediately enthralled by the world of the play and the gripping circumstances that these characters are facing. I am excited to step into the ring with Kenny & Steve to tell this story on Broadway.”

The play will begin performances on October 6 at the Booth Theatre in New York City. The official opening night is November 4.

Kerry made her Broadway debut in 2009 in the play Race. Steven has appeared in such shows as The Bridges of Madison County and Junk.
