The long-awaited Broadway debut of 91-year-old playwright Adrienne Kennedy is here. Here’s a first look at Tony winner Audra McDonald in Ohio State Murders at the newly renamed James Earl Jones Theatre. The production, directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon, began performances on November 11 and officially opens on December 8. In addition to McDonald, the play features Bryce Pinkham, Lizan Mitchell, Mister Fitzgerald and Abigail Stephenson. Ohio State Murders is an unusual look at the destructiveness of racism in the United States. When Suzanne Alexander, a fictional Black writer, returns to Ohio State University to talk about the violence in her writing, a dark mystery unravels.
