“King” LeBron James’s reign in Cleveland brings promise, prosperity, and renewal to a city in desperate need of all three. It also brings together two strangers, who communicate best when they are talking and arguing about sports. From LeBron’s rookie season to the city’s historic championship, King James explores the star player’s impact on Cleveland and the lives of two unlikely friends, whose turbulent relationship is best navigated through their shared love of the game. King James is the new play from Cleveland native Rajiv Joseph (Archduke, Guards at the Taj), who burst onto the American theatre scene with Pulitzer Prize finalist Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, which made its World premiere at Center Theatre Group in 2009 before heading to Broadway.
