Everybody, by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, directed by Lila Neugebauer


Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, who The New York Times calls “one of this country’s most original and illuminating writers,” comes back to Signature for the second production of his residency with the world premiere of Everybody. Directed by Lila Neugebauer, this modern riff on the 15th Century morality play Everyman follows Everybody (chosen from amongst the cast by lottery at each performance) as he or she travels down a road toward life's greatest mystery.
