First Look: Broadway’s Newest Comedy Chicken & Biscuits

There’s a new Broadway comedy playing at the Circle in the Square Theatre! Chicken & Biscuits, written by Douglas Lyons, is now on Broadway and photos of the production have just been released.

The Broadway cast features Norm Lewis, Michael Urie, Cleo King, NaTasha Yvette Williams, Devere Rogers, Ebony Marshall-Oliver, Aigner Mizzelle, and Alana Raquel Bowers.

This dynamic ensemble cast leads a raucous family comedy so full of laughter and love, it’ll leave you begging for seconds. The Jenkins family is coming together to celebrate the life of their father—hopefully without killing each other! But any hopes for a peaceful reunion unravel when a family secret shows up at the funeral. Chicken & Biscuits had its world premiere on February 28, 2020, at Queens Theatre, but the engagement was cut short less than two weeks later when the theater industry suspended operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Directed by Zhailon Levingston(Assoc. Director,TINA – The Tina Turner Musical) –who is the youngest black director in Broadway history at age 27 – Chicken & Biscuits celebrates its official Opening Night on Sunday, October 10, 2021, for a limited engagement through Sunday, January 2, 2022.
