JUN - JUL 2023 | Mandell Weiss Theatre
By Anna Deavere Smith | Directed by Marc Bruni
The extraordinary life of the champion Billie Jean King
Love All is the triumphant story of the rise of sports icon and social justice pioneer Billie Jean King. The trailblazer for equality faced tough competition on the court and adversity in the world, all against a backdrop of the massive social changes of the 1960s and 70s.
With the support of Billie Jean King herself, this exciting world premiere comes from the pen of award-winning playwright, professor, actor and author Anna Deavere Smith (whose screen roles include The West Wing and Nurse Jackie). Deavere Smith’s artistry is evidenced by the groundbreaking work that she has created for more than four decades, including the Tony-Award nominated Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992.
Under the skillful hand of director Marc Bruni (director of the Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winning Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Love All evokes the highs and lows of Billie Jean’s extraordinary career, and asks not just what it takes to be a champion, but what it takes to change the course of history.
“We’ve been curtsying for years. Now it’s time to stand up.” Billie Jean in Love All
