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.

Transformation into doughnuts and even Batman are involved. “Holy broken bones,” as Adam West used to say.
