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

I saw this in previews and it was too long by 45 minutes to an hour. The night I went it was 2 1/2 hours long, without intermission. In fact, it was apparent the performer ran out steam as the first half was rather physical with her running all over the stage. I understand completely the need for preview performances, but I was disappointed the actress had to stop so frequently to check her notes to see what the next line was. It was her play, after all. That, too, was a clue the play ran way too long. The play is a biography of the performer's life expressed through the paintings she makes on stage. (Personally, I always find it ingratiating to hear a middle-aged actress speak in that annoying squeal of a child.) It's obvious she is no painter. Each finished piece is horrible. This play needs a great deal of work. Perhaps it will get there by the time it officially opens.
