Thurgood Marshall rose from the backstreets of Baltimore to the Supreme Court of the United States, overcoming whatever obstacles 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, who also directed Broadway’s Tony Award-winning play, Master Class. Thurgood is produced on Broadway by five time Tony Award winner Bill Haber.

Stirring and absorbing. Laurence Fishburne is effortlessly compelling. Thurgood may actually feel like a sweet escape to happier times, every bit as cheering (and a whole lot more edifying) than the giddiest of Broadway musicals. As I left, I found myself misty eyed." - NY Times
