Ohio State Murders (Broadway, James Earl Jones Theatre, 2022) | Playbill

Ohio State Murders

One Act

Emmy, Grammy, and Six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald will return to Broadway this season starring in Ohio State Murders by Adrienne Kennedy, directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (Fences, A Soldier’s Play). The production will be the first show to play at the newly re-named and renovated James Earl Jones Theatre (formerly the Cort Theatre).


When writer Suzanne Alexander returns to her alma mater as a guest speaker, in which she explores the violence in her works, a dark mystery unravels. Adrienne Kennedy’s Ohio State Murders is an intriguing and unusual suspense play, as well as a social pertinent look at the destructiveness of racism in our society.
