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

Award-winning Italian comedian Ennio Marchetto, is ENNIO, a one man origami extravaganza! Audiences unfamiliar with the Venetian born Marchetto will be unprepared for what lies in store. Backed by an eclectic soundtrack of the latest hits and using an ingenious assortment of intricate paper costumes that defy description, Ennio morphs into pop culture icons. One moment he is Bruce Springsteen singing ‘Born in the USA’, the next he is Popeye dancing a jig. The list of parodies is endless and the ENNIO repertoire has expanded for the Wadsworth Theatre engagement to include such notables as: Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, Wonder Woman, the (new) Pope, Liberace, Bruce Lee, Britney Spears, the Beach Boys, Billy Idol and more. No one is safe when Ennio picks up his paper cut-outs!
