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

If you haven't seen the first incarnation of this particular piece, this one is actually great, and we recommend this one. He's a truly great pianist and stage presence. On the other hand, having seen and loved ALL of Mr. Feldman's many recent shows (and productions) in SoCal - including the earlier one on Lincoln's death, I have to emphatically say that most of the changes to this one just sucked out all of the emotion for me. When I saw the "old" version I was actually shocked to find myself crying freely at the end, whereas this one was merely informative and pleasant. I am not surprised he removed the large orchestra - and that wasn't the problem for me. But removing the first-person narrator eviscerated it, in my opinion.
