About Take Me Out on Broadway

The Tony Award-winning hit Take Me Out, written by Richard Greenberg and directed by Scott Ellis, is back for another limited run starring Jesse Williams and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Get Take Me Out tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

What is the play Take Me Out about?

The Take Me Out play revolves around a mixed-race baseball star named Darren Lemming, who comes out as gay and is confronted off the field by deep-rooted homophobic and racist prejudices. Though he finds support in the form of Kippy Sunderstrom (his best friend on the team) and Mason Marzac (his new business manager), Darren finds himself questioning his love for baseball at the height of his career. Offering an explosive take on homophobia, racism, class, and masculinity in the world of sports, Take Me Out knocks it out of the park as both a crucial social commentary and a riveting piece of theatre.

Take Me Out was first staged at the Donmar Warehouse in London and subsequently at The Public Theater in New York as a co-production between the two companies. The Take Me Out Broadway premiere came in 2003, with Daniel Sunjata as Darren Lemming. After becoming a finalist for that year's Pulitzer Prize, Take Me Out won three Tony Awards: Best Play, Best Direction (for Joe Mantello), and Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play (for Denis O’Hare as Mason Marzac). Later that year, Joe Mantello directed Wicked, which is one of the most successful Broadway musicals of all time.

Take Me Out has proven as relevant today as it was at the time of its original premiere. In spring 2022, Second Stage Theater mounted the first revival of Take Me Out with an all-star cast: Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams and Suits star Patrick J. Adams in their Broadway debuts, and Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson in his first return to Broadway in six years. That production was a grand-slam hit, earning lots of rave reviews and four Tony Award nominations. Following in the original production's footsteps, Take Me Out won Best Revival of a Play, and Ferguson won Best Featured Actor for his own performance as Mason.

How long is the Take Me Out play?

Take Me Out runs 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.

Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see a good, well written play. Some may feel it’s dated, but it still holds up. A entertaining story that draws you in swiftly.

Don’t see it if your memory of the superior original 2002/03 NY productions will make you just look for flaws.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great staging, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you want to see how multiple messages in an award-winning play from two decades ago are still very relevant. Light humor and good direction.

Don’t see it if intense interactions over race and sexual orientation are disturbing for you.
