Kerry Washington Explains Why New Broadway Play 'American Son' Is So Special

Kerry Washington is back on Broadway after an absence of nearly a decade and she picked an important play for her return.

The Emmy-nominated actress is starring in the new play American Son, which will have its official opening night this Sunday. In new photos that were just released, Kerry, who is also a producer on the project, is pictured alongside co-stars Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan, and Eugene Lee.

In a recent interview, Kerry discussed what makes the show so special.

“It’s definitely for me one of the most challenging projects I’ve ever taken on as an actor,” Kerry said on The Today Show this week. “It’s very special to me. It’s a really beautiful play about parenting and about love and about identity and race. I feel like the luckiest woman in the world that I get to do it eight times a week and also it’s really hard.”

The show is running now through January 27 and tickets are available right now on Telecharge.
