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

Absolutely awesome experience. The actors are great. Plus they are so humble and interactive with you that makes you feel like you have known them for years. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. It is an adult show though.
Written and directed by actress Peppur Chambers (creator, the Brown Betties_ _of _Harlem’s Night _cabaret dinner-theater experience), the Build Up features a stellar, New York-trained cast featuring Alex Dawson (Kaleigh), Chris Mollica (Christophe), Daniel Ball (Wyatt), Taro Morita (George), Erica Peeples (Laurie) and Tina McDowelle (Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules) as Sasha Simmons.
_This is a walk-around event. Please wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to climb stairs.
