About Everybody

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins shines his light on the 15th century play "Everyman" with startling results. "Everybody" – a role assigned each night from a small cast of actors by lottery live on stage – is a happy person, a free person, a person who believes nothing but the best lies ahead. Then Death comes calling and Everybody must go on the journey of a lifetime. Obie Award-winner and MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient Branden Jacobs-Jenkins ("An Octoroon") has created an irreverent, rollicking ride that asks deep questions of all who see it.
