Broadway In The HOOD (BITH) in partnership with Boulder City Parks & Recreation is thrilled to present the critically acclaimed touring production of the Broadway play, American Son. Las Vegas based Tony & Emmy Award nominated arts and education theatre company BITH has been selected as the recipient of a Target of Opportunity Grant by Nevada Arts Council to tour their production of American Son by Christopher Demos-Brown.
American Son, the riveting Broadway play adapted into Netflix television special, is an explosive drama that takes place in real-time in the waiting room of a police station over the course of one evening, where an estranged couple collide as they confront an unexpected crisis involving their son, the police, and an abandoned car. This powerful play examines the complexities facing our law enforcement officers, their families and the harsh reality facing the youth of our country today.
The touring production of American Son kicked off in Las Vegas on January 8 and will tour major and rural theatre locations throughout the state of Nevada until June 2022 including Boulder City, Carson City, and Reno. Performances for American Son will run one hour and fifteen minutes with a thirty-minute talkback session with the cast and crew following each performance. It’s free and open to the public and sponsored by The Nevada Arts Council.
