First couple catch performance of ‘Thurgood’
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and the first lady are watching a sold-out play about a former Supreme Court justice at the Kennedy Center.
The president and Michelle Obama were seen in the president’s box at the Kennedy Center, where they are taking in a performance of “Thurgood,” a play about Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
Marshall was the first black justice on the court. He is being played by actor Laurence Fishburne in the one-man show.
The 90-minute production opened on Broadway in 2008 and earned Fishburne a Tony Award nomination.
