Sparks fly at the John Golden Theater on Broadway.

That’s because the fiery new production of “Topdog/Underdog,” starring Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton”) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (“Candyman”), has electrified audiences since it premiered on Oct. 20.

Returning to Broadway for the first time since its debut in 2002, starring Don Cheadle and Jeffrey Wright, Topdog/Underdog tells the story of the ironically named brothers Lincoln and Booth.

The duo – the only actors in the play – laugh, argue and get by in Booth’s (Mateen II) one bedroom apartment after his wife kicked out Lincoln (Hawkins).

New York Post critic Johnny Oleksinski called the production “a sharp, focused revival … with two great performances that never let up.”

So if you want to see this alternately comedic and dramatic show live, you still can.

However, this option is only available for a few months.

Already in the middle of a 16-week run, “Topdog/Underdog” concludes on Sunday, January 15, 2023.
