See Glenn Davis and Abbott Elementary's Chris Perfetti in King James, a new drama from Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph. Get King James tickets on TodayTix.
King James is like a one-on-one game, but verbal rather than athletic. Perfetti and Davis are the sole actors, playing two Cleveland men with only one thing in common: their fascination with LeBron James. Over the course of 12 years, their friendship repeatedly falls apart and comes back together in parallel with James's career.
Even if you're not an NBA diehard, you'll still enjoy this play — King James is really about friendship and how one shared interest can spark a deep connection between otherwise opposite people. This show will move you from tip-off to the final buzzer — well, scene.
Don't miss your chance to see two all-star actors hit the stage. Get tickets to King James off Broadway.
