NY Magazine names AN OCTOROON Best Theater of 2015

New York Magazine‘s excellent blog Vulture named An Octoroon one of the Best Plays of 2015!

Theater editor Jesse Green writes:

“I didn’t catch Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’s postmodern melodrama when it debuted in 2014, but the 2015 restaging was one of the funniest and most shocking plays of the year. Setting his traps with sassy slaves trading Oprah-esque uplift, he led audiences directly into the core of race confusion and then blew it up.”
