"American Son" tops list of 2017's best NJ theatre productions


Last season's American Son has been ranked as NJArts.net's list of top 15 New Jersey theater productions of 2017.

Suzzanne Douglas was absolutely unforgettable in this timely drama, playing an African-American college professor whose son was possibly involved in a police incident. The action takes place at 4 a.m. in a Miami police station waiting room, and it’s a long, excruciating wait until she finds out what really happened.

See the next installment of playwright Christopher Demos-Brown's planned trilogy exploring American injustice, American Hero, at George Street Playhouse from January 30 through February 25.
