Last night at the Circle in the Square Theatre, the new comedy Chicken & Biscuits officially opened on Broadway. Written by Douglas Lyons, the play is directed by Zhailon Levingston, who made history last night by becoming the youngest Black director in Broadway history. 

The hilarious family comedy stars Cleo King in her Broadway debut as Baneatta Mabry, Tony Award nominee Norm Lewis as Reginald Mabry, Drama Desk Award winner Michael Urie, Broadway veteran NaTasha Yvette Williams as Brianna Jenkins, and Devere Rogers in his Broadway debut as Kenny Mabry. Reprising their roles from the play’s world premiere at Queens Theatre, and making their Broadway stage debuts, are Ebony Marshall-Oliver as Beverly Jenkins, Aigner Mizzelle as La'trice Franklin, and Alana Raquel Bowers as Simone Mabry.
