THE HOT WING KING
BY KATORI HALL
DIRECTED BY STEVE H. BROADNAX III
Ready, set, fry! It’s time for the annual “Hot Wang Festival” in Memphis, Tennessee, and Cordell Crutchfield knows he has the wings that’ll make him king. Supported by his beau Dwayne and their culinary clique, The New Wing Order, Cordell is marinating and firing up his frying pan in a bid to reclaim the crispy crown. When Dwayne takes in his troubled nephew however, it becomes a recipe for disaster. Suddenly, a first place trophy isn’t the only thing Cordell risks losing. Steve H. Broadnax III will direct this sizzling world premiere comedy from Residency 5 playwright Katori Hall (Hurt Village, Our Lady of Kibeho).
The cast features Nicco Annan (Big Charles), Sheldon Best (Isom), Cecil Blutcher (Everett “EJ”), Korey Jackson (Dwayne), Toussaint Jeanlouis (Cordell), and Eric B. Robinson Jr. (TJ).
On Friday, March 20 at 6:30pm, Signature Theatre will host a Blackout night. This night will be dedicated to Black and African-American audience members to celebrate the World Premiere of The Hot Wing King. To access tickets for this night, use the code KINGS.
