WHO IS
CLARENCE
DARROW?

CLARENCE DARROW was the most celebrated trial lawyer in our nation’s history.

He never shied from the sensational.
He looked controversy square in the eye.
He fought for truth over fiction, love over hate.

As a champion of the rights of the underdog, he was one of the most legendary crusaders of justice that America ever saw.

And now, KEVIN SPACEY — the Oscar, Tony and Olivier award-winning star — makes the American debut of his acclaimed one-man show, playing the man who made headlines taking on the cases others wouldn’t dare touch.

This event happens only at the world-renowned ARTHUR ASHE STADIUM — transformed for the first time in its history into one of the greatest theatrical stages New York has ever seen.
