Fat Ham

Straight from Broadway to Broad Street, catch Fat Ham, James Ijames’ 2022 Pulitzer Prize-winning play. South Philly’s Ijames won the Pulitzer, based on a virtual production that streamed during the COVID-19 pandemic and a brief Broadway run. It also was nominated for five Tony Awards. It’s a clever modern twist on Shakespeare’s Hamlet set at a backyard barbeque in the South. The main character is Juicy, “who is Black, queer, and soft – and learning to love himself,” according to the promotional material. The ghost of Juicy’s dad sets out to haunt him and seek revenge on Juicy’s uncle, who has now married his widowed mom. It’s a comedy and tragedy rolled into one production. Times vary. $29 to $65.
