One of the most important figures in the contemporary Black cultural arena is Woodie King, founder and producing director of the New Federal Theater and the National Black Touring Circuit in New York City. He has presented over 200 plays since the theater first launched in 1970, in addition to producing and directing Broadway shows by Ntozake Sange and Ron Milner. He has also facilitated the careers of renowned actors such as Glynn Turman, Phylicia Rashad, Viola Davis, Denzel Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson. The full measure of this legacy is explored in King of the Stage, a curtain call for an immortal of the American theater.
