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

Quotes & Highlights
“[A] stunning and courageous autobiographical one-woman show … Marie’s vibrant presence onstage is proof that she survived. But more miraculous is the empathy that illuminates her portrayals of the relatives who hurt her.” -Los Angeles Times (Critic’s Choice)
“This truly is a beautiful play … each character stands out distinct and idiosyncratic. Under Geoffrey Rivas’ sensitive and precise direction, this world premiere of what started as a spoken word monologue becomes a fully realized drama … the story it tells is universal.” —Theatre Spoken Here
“Jozanne’s vulnerability as an actor while performing her own life story coupled with her passion for living her life beautifully brings out themes of forgiveness, love and resilience in this spoken word one-woman play. In addition to telling a compelling, thought-provoking story, Beautiful wonderfully exemplifies theater as a powerful tool for social change.” -LifeInLA.com
