Patience Information

The second production in Second Stage Theater's 2022 Uptown Series is Patience by Johnny G. Lloyd. Patience tickets are available now. Get Patience Off-Broadway tickets on New York Theatre Guide. 

Patience is a play about a Black man named Daniel, who plays solitaire. Professionally. He's very good - some would say the best.  But he is ready to retire and settle into that perfect new house with his husband-to-be, Jordan. He's just got to hold it together through one final, career-defining match. A sports-inspired fantasia, Patience is a meditation on Black excellence, next chapters, and playing a very long game alone.

Patience is directed by Zhailon Levingston. In 2021, Levingston became the youngest-ever Black Broadway director for directing Chicken & Biscuits in 2021.

For 90 minutes at the McGinn/Cazale Theater, at least, we are watching, and we're invited...
