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
“You’ll howl with delight as this happy-faced duo launches into absurd medleys … a delightfully god-awful lounge act riotously over the top.”
—_LA Weekly _
“The show. . .is not just awful — it’s awfully entertaining.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
Starring Judy Heneghan and Michael Halpin
With Peter Staloch and the Swizzle Stick Dancers
Experience Martini and Olive’s whistlestop medleys of hit 1970s pop songs, played out by two characters in costumes that should be considered crimes against humanity and backed up by a trio of middle-aged tap dancers whose credo is “overmedicated and ready to rock.”
See what the St. Paul Pioneer Press called “such deliciously, marvelously, intentionally appalling stuff that you’ll find yourself alternately holding your head in your hands and wiping tears of laughter out of your eyes. Shaken or stirred, Martini & Olive are a heck of a cocktail. These people know how to make us laugh. First time I saw them… I laughed so hard I also gave myself a hernia.”
