About Home on Broadway
This hidden gem of a play is coming home. Back on Broadway for the first time since its Tony-nominated 1980 premiere, Samm-Art Williams's Home tells a tender story of a man who travels far and wide for his own place to call home.
Cephus Miles thinks his sweetheart, Pattie Mae, will keep her promise to be with him after she finishes college — but she ultimately marries another man while Cephus waited. So he embarks on a trip from the rural South to the urban North and back, where he encounters a changing, complex world and looks for his place to belong in it.
This play calls the American Airlines Theatre home for two months only — tickets are available on Goldstar now.
The Negro Ensemble Company staged the world premiere of Home in 1979, and the show's Broadway premiere came a year later. The production ran for eight months, earning Tony nods for Best Play and Best Actor (Charles Brown as Cephus). A couple Off-Broadway revivals have occurred since, but this is the first Broadway production in more than 40 years.
- Kenny Leon is having a homecoming. The director, who won a Tony Award for directing A Soldier's Play for Roundabout Theatre Company, returns to stage the company's production of Home on Broadway.
- He also knows how to stage a revival. They've been his specialty as of late — his production of Topdog/Underdog won the 2023 Tony for Best Revival, and his Purlie Victorious and Ohio State Murders earned critical acclaim.
- Samm-Art Williams is a living legend. He has written for stage and film and worked extensively as an actor — he does it all, and at 77, he is still active in the industry.
