Why See Thurgood?

The one-man show is based on the life and momentous times of Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American to serve on the Supreme Court.

Thurgood Marshall rose from the backstreets of Baltimore to the Supreme Court of the United States, overcoming whatever obstacle society placed in his way. Thurgood is his remarkable story, a triumph of courage - not just for the man, but for the nation he bravely challenged and proudly served.

Written by eleven-time Emmy Award-winner and two-time Peabody Award-winner George Stevens, Jr., Thurgood (is directed by) Leonard Foglia, (the) director from last season's Tony Award nominated production of On Golden Pond. Foglia also directed Broadway's Tony Award-winning play, Master Class.
