“A Soldier’s Play,” the first Broadway production of Charles Fuller’s award-winning drama, officially opens Jan. 21 at the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, starring David Alan Grier as Sergeant Vernon C. Waters and Blair Underwood as Captain Richard Davenport, also includes the cast of Nnamdi Asomugha, Jerry O’Connell, McKinley Belcher III, Rob Demery, Jared Grimes, Billy Eugene Jones, Nate Mann, Warner Miller, J.

The storyline is set in 1944 at a Louisiana Army base where a sergeant is murdered. The crime triggers a barrage of questions about sacrifice, service and identity in America.

The play comes to Broadway for the first time under direction of Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (“A Raisin in the Sun”).
