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

Thus, all three are doomed to a perpetual stalemate of torture and the ultimate realization that “Hell is just other people.” The fantastical costume and make-up designs strongly contrast the refined dialogue and setting but are united through unconventional movement and music. Two women. One man. No exit.
