Coming to the James Earl Jones Theatre this Fall

Six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald–“the undisputed queen of live theater” (Variety)–stars in the riveting and surprising Ohio State Murders. In a tour-de-force performance directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Soldiers Play), McDonald plays a famous writer who returns to her alma mater to finally reveal the truth of what happened when she was a student there.

Filled with “nail-biting suspense” (The New York Times), this haunting, provocative play marks the long-awaited Broadway debut of the legendary Adrienne Kennedy, “one of the finest living American playwrights” (The New York Times), at the age of 91 and, in a historic moment, opens the newly named James Earl Jones Theatre.  Join our email list to get ticket updates and exclusive show content.
