Tarell Alvin McCraney's latest acclaimed play tracks the coming-of-age of a group of talented young African-American prep-school singers whose choral prowess is woven seamlessly into the story. Pharus, the undisputed superstar of the choir, is searching for the courage to let his true self shine through, in this work by MacArthur Fellowship-winner McCraney (The Brother/Sister Plays), who's been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). The West Coast premiere reunites director Trip Cullman, star Jeremy Pope and several other cast members from its 2013 New York run. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Written by Kyle Crichton
Directed by Mario DiGregorio
He has a fine house at 2104 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, a fortune of one million dollars — not a trivial amount in 1917 because Woodrow Wilson had barely come into power — and a great enthusiasm for lunacy. He collects alligators and prizefighters and rules his family by bluster. Upon entering the room, the butler always inquires deferentially, “You yelled, sir?”
Biddle’s daughter wants to marry the wealthy Angie Duke, but his parents are shocked by the Biddles’ freewheeling lifestyle. How this play resolves itself provides an evening of laughs and fun!
Starring Paul Nieman (Anthony J. Drexel Biddle), Darryl Maximilian Robinson (John Lawless), Andrea Stradling (Mrs. Anthony J. Drexel Biddle), Samantha Claire (Cordelia Biddle), Brian Alexander (Angier Duke) and Libby West (Mrs. Benjamin Duke)
