2023 Hot Ticket

Fat Ham

Last year, South Philly playwright James Ijames won the Pulitzer for this play in which he deftly transports the story of Hamlet­ to a Black family’s cookout down South. This year, the show opened on Broadway to positively rave reviews, both from critics­ and from theater tastemakers like Lin-Manuel Miranda. It also scooped up five Tony noms. And next, you can see Fat Ham on Broad Street at the Wilma, where it runs from November 24th through December 17th. Assuming you can score tickets, that is.
