KING JAMES by Rajiv Joseph


  • Steppenwolf Theatre Company (IL) (map)

“King” LeBron James’s reign in Cleveland brings promise, prosperity and renewal to a city in desperate need of all three. As the city celebrates a championship, two estranged friends spar in a verbal game of 1 on 1, revealing past secrets, present truths, and a possible future after “The King” has left the building. Steppenwolf in association with Center Theatre Group co-present this world premiere by ensemble member Rajiv Joseph, and directed by ensemble member Anna D. Shapiro. King James will also be produced in LA as part of Center Theatre Group’s 2020/21 season.
